Sounding Out

« previous episode | next episode »

Sunday, September 20, 2009

Listening to sound is pretty essential for any musician. But some musicians go even farther by developing their own unique philosophies about it, and Slow Six is such a group. They describe themselves as life-long musicians sounding out a room together, and use amplified instruments coupled with computer software to create ambient atmospheres, and much more. Tonight we hear a piece of Slow Six's Christopher Tignor, from their evocatively titled album Private Times in Public Places. Also, music of Fred Lerdahl and Samuel Barber.

I am unable to find the song that is currently playing but I'd love to know what it is.
