Something Old, New, Borrowed & Blue

« previous episode | next episode »

Thursday, January 26, 1989

However "lame" - and that's straight from John Schaefer's own mouth, this show features electronic music from one of each of these categories. Listen to an "old" work by Rome-based composer Alvin Curran from 1973, for synthesizer, kalimba, and natural sounds on tape. Plus, a "new" electronic work by David Borden and one by Wendy Carlos that borrows from an classical work by Henry Purcell. Rounding out the show is a piece based on American blues by Neil Rolnick.
