#3933: Music For An Experience

Email a Friend
Palissimo Company’s The Painted Bird

Hear music inspired by a story, an image, or a theatrical experience for this New Sounds, including selections from dance scores, music theatre and opera works, as well as a soundtrack to a 1973 war.

Listen to selections from the musical score to the Pavel Zuštiak and Palissimo Company’s The Painted Bird: Amidst dance performance, featuring works by violist, composer, and sound designer Christian Frederickson (Rachel’s) and composer, drummer and sound designer Ryan Rumery (The Broken Spoke), along with help from the late Jason Noble (Rachel’s). The music consists of viola, guitar and keyboard, together with bass and drums, and the work got its premiere back in 2011. The record release for The Painted Bird: Amidst is Friday night, 1/6, 17 at 10PM at LaMama.

Listen to Irish composer Linda Buckley’s setting of Icelandic text from the tradition of rimur poetry, featuring layers of soprano Elizabeth Hilliard. Inspired by everything from medieval music to electronica, “Númarímur” is Buckley’s ode to the Icelandic landscape, whose expansive beauty she had only imagined, not yet having visited the country when she wrote the work. Also, hear the phantom resonances of memory in diffused and elegant music from Icelandic composer Anna Thorvaldsdottir, from her Rhizoma album. Then, listen to some music for voice and electronics from the opera, “The Wasp Factory” by Ben Frost, and instrumental music by Yair Yona that was written as a soundtrack of the Yom Kippur War.
