#3602: Post-Rock/Post-Classical

Email a Friend

Listen to two big pieces which might be labeled post-classical or post-rock on this New Sounds program. There’s music from composer Bryce Dessner, featuring a diverse palette of bowed vibraphone, harmonium, electric guitar, and orchestra, in Dessner’s “Raphael” (2007).  Also, hear almost orchestral music with a post-rock ambient drone approach in “Virginia,” a large work from the Austin, TX-based duo Stars of the Lid.  Plus a work from Stars of the Lid founder Adam Wiltzie and composer Dustin O’Halloran, as A Winged Victory For the Sullen, and more.
