Electro-Acoustic Music

For this New Sounds, we’ll dip into the new collection of works by Eve Beglarian, from a CD called “Tell the Birds,” which deals with texts, from such disparate writers as William Blake, Polish poet Czeslaw Milosz, and American poets Linda Norton and Stanley Kunitz. Listen for combinations of samplers and electronics with vocalists, the Paul Dresher Ensemble Electro-Acoustic Band and possibly an orchestral showpiece. Plus, music by the Norwegian trumpet player, composer and producer Nils Petter Molvær. His music connects stylistic extremes - jazz, ambient, house, electronic and breakbeats - and effortlessly melts them into intense soundscapes that give space to the trumpet and the melodic structures and can stretch to eternity.
