Email a Friend
From

Listen to music for duos on this New Sounds show, including stunning and inviting works from harpist Mary Lattimore & synth/guitarist/producer Jeff Zeigler off of their recent collaboration, "Slant of Light."  Also, hear music from Xylouris White, comprised of Cretan singer and lute player George Xylouris and drummer/percussionist Jim White (The Dirty Three, Cat Power, others), recorded and engineered by Guy Picciotto (Fugazi, Rites of Spring).

Then, hear music by Paola Prestini from a new record by cellist Jeffrey Zeigler (formerly of Kronos Quartet), which features percussionist/composer Jason Treuting (So Percussion). Prestini's Listen, Quiet is a conversation between cello passages and drums, blocks, marimba, and what sounds like glockenspiel all layered over cuts of chattering groups of female voices.  Plus, music from the recent record by Piers Faccini & Vincent Segal, and more.
