Globetrotting Electro-acoustica

Up on this New Sounds, electro-acoustic music from Japan, Austria, Ireland, and the U.S. Listen to an unusual work by London-based Pete M. Wyer, called “Four Bridges.” Recorded at four different locations in India, America Germany, and UK, musicians play from the same time-coded score, which specifies what kind of improvising to do and how long to do it. Then, in a most unusual weave, Wyer pieced these acoustic recordings together as a tape work. Also, we’ll hear from Irish composer Linda Buckley, Austrian sound artist Bernhard Fleischmann, Brooklyn-based pianist Marco Benevento, and Ryuichi Sakamoto as well.
