Chatter and Soundscapes

« previous episode | next episode »

Thursday, March 20, 2008

Hear Paul Lansky's hiphop-inspired 'chatter' piece, on this edition of New Sounds. "Wordless. Chatter of Pins," is a response to an invitation by Keith and Mende Obadike to contribute a track of music inspired by hiphop. Also from his new release, Music Box, listen to the introverted lyricism of his "Pavane Noir." Plus, music by soprano saxophonist, improviser/composer, and acoustician Jonas Braasch. From his recent "Global Reflections," we'll hear pieces formed with nature's ability to align independent events to form interesting patterns. That and much more.

Carol, the piece you're asking about is indeed a Roy Nathanson work. "Fire At Keaton's Bar and Grill" is the name, and it was recorded by Six Degrees REcords. - also available at Amazon, etc.
And Jerry From Queens is doing fine, just really busy and often unable to call in as he used to do. I'm amazed how many "fans" he picked up that way though!

Dear John,

Terrific NS Live last night at Merkin!

Any chance you can help me identify another word and music piece? I think it's Roy Nathanson(Sp?) and something about a fire at a bar and grill?

You were great at helping me find Translucence. Sorry, no good deed goes unpunished.

Carol Greenberg

P.S. How's Jerry from Queens?
