Friday, July 18, 2008

Contrary to the origins of the phrase, this New Sounds program showcases works celebrating the female voice. Hear music that spans centuries and crosses cultures, including creations from Lisa Gerrard, Mediaeval Baebes, and Muriel Louveau. Also, Canadian vocalist and composer Laurel MacDonald contributes richly-textured music featuring eclectic instrumentation and soundscapes concocted by producer and sound designer Philip Strong. And the co-founders of Elysian Fields Jennifer Charles & Oren Bloedow team up for renditions of Sephardic and Ladino songs.
