Episode #2105

Clangorous Clarinets and Drones

« previous episode | next episode »

Saturday, October 16, 2004

In their arresting 2002 suite, Iron Sky, percussionist Jerry Granelli and clarinetist Jeff Reilly evoke a rich array of weird textures and otherworldly sounds by playing iron sound sculptures (made by John Little in a Nova Scotia Iron Foundry) alongside electro-acoustic percussion, clarinet, and bass clarinet. We hear excerpts on this edition of New Sounds. Also, New York's Downtown Ensemble performs Mary Jane Leach's "Bare Bones," which features a quartet of trombones in drone-like harmonies. And we hear the polystylistic (and very downtown) works of Trygve Seim, Oyvind Braekke, and Per Oddvar Johansen on ECM.
