#3760: More Electronic Music

Email a Friend
Laura Venditti

Listen to some electronic music on this New Sounds, including works for sax and electronics, trumpet and electronics, and cascading layers of percussion instruments with electronics. Hear Italian sax player & composer Laura Venditti playing Wayne Siegel’s work, “Jackdaw,” from her record, “ElectroSax”-a collection of electronic pieces that call for one or more saxophones. 

Hear the “anti-newage music” which falls squarely between electronic music and modern classical music from New Yorker Kenneth Kirschner. This particular piece, named only by date, “April 16, 2013,” is made of dense and intricate layers of tuned percussion instruments (bells, glockenspiels, xylophones) played with constantly shifting, irregular meters, in highly melodious webs.

Then, there’s hybrid electro-acoustic music for trumpet and electronics from trumpeter Dave Douglas featuring Michigan-based laptop artist, Shigeto – from the quartet record, “High Risk.” Plus, hear electronic music which veers towards guitar-based shoegazey atmospherics from Flying Saucer Attack (aka Dave Pearce) & more.
