Wednesday, July 30, 2008

There's more music from the 2008 edition of new music’s biggest annual party, the Bang On A Can Marathon at the World Financial Center. For this New Sounds, expect music from Caleb Burhans, who is running in multiple music circles these days, with Alarm Will Sound, and the chamber duo itsnotyouitsme, along with his vocal career as a countertenor. We'll also hear old Brian Eno, his work "Discreet Music" as played by the ensemble Contact, and a recent work by Steve Reich, "The Daniel Variations." Plus, music by Bora Yoon, a multi-instrumentalist/composer who DJ Spooky has called "a one-woman orchestra." And more.

HUGE Joni fan!!! Thank you so much for today's show 7/30/08. Music is my life, and my occupation. No one moved me more than Joni M. Blue, Miles of Isles, to Indigo and Shine... Wish she would tour... would love to see her live. Any knowlege of upcoming performances???

Thank you sooo much!
