Downtown "Chamber" Music

New Sounds presents an hour of unusual ensemble music for this program, with music by Tarantula, Slow Six, the Clogs and the Tin Hat Trio. Deceptively simple and breathtakingly delicate music is Tarantula's specialty, who are set up like something of a chamber ensemble with violin and cello, but also with guitars, bass, and drums. (Lately, their sound has taken a metal turn, but we're sticking with this record.) The Clogs offer up thoughtful and romantic chamber-y post-rock with bassoon, violin/viola, guitar and percussion. Also in the thoughtful vein is the playful and twisted music of the Tin Hat Trio. Plus, rounding out the show is music from Slow Six, an eight-piece electro-acoustic outfit with video projections (video not included on New Sounds.)
