Music From the North

« previous episode | next episode »

Saturday, October 27, 2012

Hear some Icelandic electronic chamber music with a delicate undercurrent of minimalism from the young Olafur Arnalds on this New Sounds.  The rest of this Northern edition of the show includes music from Norway and Sweden, and more from Iceland.

We’ll listen to the Arnalds record, "And they have escaped the weight of darkness," along with the inventive Swedish keyboard trio, EST.  Also, there's music from another piano trio, the Helge Lien Trio, and their record “Hello Troll.”  Plus, more music from Iceland by way of Australia, courtesy of Ben Frost. Frost lives and works in Iceland and incorporates what might sound like sheets of ice and wolves into his piece, “Leo Needs a New Pair of Shoes.”  Rounding out the show is music not-from-the-north by ex-Pop Will Eat Itself member Clint Mansell, played by Scottish band Mogwai and Kronos Quartet.
