Hybrid Ensembles

« previous episode | next episode »

Saturday, November 24, 2012

For this New Sounds, we’ll explore many different hybrid ensembles aboard.  We’ll hear music by composer/programmer/performer/theorist and yes, mandolinist as well as professor at Dartmouth College, Larry Polansky.  Polansky’s latest release involves the Dutch electric guitar quartet, Zwerm, together with the saxophone quartet [sic] and additional percussion, harp and electronics!

Then we’ll listen to an electroacoustic band led by Dave Douglas, plus a few different records featuring the Austrian guitarist and sound artist Christian Fennesz, or simply, Fennesz.  Plus, cinematic downtown groove instrumentals by Mojo Mancini, a collection of very talented players, all best known for working in the studio with other musicians.   That, and more.
