Tuesday, September 09, 2008

Brooklyn-based Slow Six makes new electroacoustic music with amplified violins, viola, cello, electric guitars, fender rhodes, piano, and software instruments and it's hard to describe: Post-rock, post-chamber? Hear some of their new record, "Nor'easter" on this edition of New Sounds. Also, there's music inspired by the inner journey of Mahatma Gandhi by saxophone/flute player and composer Andrew Sterman, known for his work in the Philip Glass Ensemble. Listen to some of Sterman's "The Path to Peace" combining free-jazz, ballads, and world music. Plus, experimental, folk psychedelia from the post chamber group Oak. And more.
