Episode #3174

Newspeak & Alt-Classical Bands

« previous episode | next episode »

Saturday, June 15, 2013

For this New Sounds, listen to some "alt-classical" or "indie classical" bands, like Newspeak or the Paul Bailey Ensemble.  Newspeak is an eight-piece amplified ensemble working under the direction of composer David T. Little and clarinetist Eileen Mack. Named after the thought-limiting language in George Orwell’s 1984, Newspeak explores the grey area where art and politics mix.  We'll hear the group, from their "Sweet Light Crude" release, playing a work by Missy Mazzoli - "In spite of all this."

Plus, listen to some electroacoustic chamber rock from Nicole Lizee (Besnard Lakes), a Canadian composer who manages to weave in jazz, improvisation, pop music, contemporary music and everything in between.  Music by the Paul Bailey Ensemble rounds out the show.

PROGRAM #        3174, “alt-classical” and “indie classical”        (First aired on 2-23-11)

I just wanted to thank you for letting the Paul Bailey Ensemble be a part of your shows over the past few years and pairing us with so many other interesting artists/composers. I really enjoy your show! -Matt (bassist-PBE)
