Post-Minimalist Keyboard Works (Special Podcast)

Monday, June 10, 2013


For this New Sounds show, listen to post-minimalist works  that are somewhat keyboard-centric.  Hear brand new music by Daniel Wohl, from the musicians of TRANSIT, and featuring vocals by Julia Holter.   There’s also music from French composer Sylvain Chaveau, from a collection of works for cinema.  Plus, the Irish composer Simon O’Connor reworks J.S. Bach for the Ergodos Musicians, and listen to a multi-part work by Nico Muhly from his “Drones” release.

Special thanks to our New Sounds Spring Intern, Caroline, for her help in securing these permissions.  Extra thanks to New Sounds Summer Intern  Ross Harriss, for doing the heavy lifting of the editing
