Musical Delay Tactics

Wednesday, October 17, 2012

Hear music made with tape loops, digital loops, and/or digital delay on this New Sounds show, with works from Ingram Marshall & Moby, along with a dreamy guitarscape from Evan Caminiti.  Caminiti, who is also one half of twang flecked drone duo Barn Owl, reins in the twang and ominously increases drone on his most recent effort, “Dreamless Sleep.” 

In the same mostly instrumental vein, there’s also music by Jónsi & Alex from their book / recording “Riceboy Sleeps.”  Jónsi's distinctive vocals are more regularly heard fronting the Icelandic band Sigur Rós, whose frequent collaborators, the string players of Amiina, also figure on the “Riceboy Sleeps” project, although the strings are digitally remixed and manipulated.  That, and more.
