Trumpeter, composer and electronic pioneer Jon Hassell joins New Sounds to present his newest works from his latest release.
Trumpeter, composer and electronic pioneer Jon Hassell helped shape the nascent "world music" movement in the late 70s. For this New Sounds, he joins us to present his newest works from his latest release (the first for ECM in over 20 years), "Last night the moon came dropping its clothes in the street." Otherworldly, melodic and sensual, Hassell's effort is a blend of African violin - suggesting the Middle East, Norwegian guitar playing and live sampling, understated pulses of percussion, improvised music and electronics, which result in some astounding real-time soundscapes.
