« previous episode | next episode »

Thursday, April 09, 2009

Hear small ensembles that use the voice as an instrument (often an electronic one) on this New Sounds program. We'll listen to the Scandinavian-Belgian trio of Mikkel Ploug, Sissel Vera Pettersen, and Joachim Badenhorst along with the German-American trio of Theo Bleckmann, Gary Versace, and John Hollenbeck, -Refuge Trio- in which both vocalists use electronic processing. In a work called "Bright Moon," drummer John Hollenbeck's setting of Masahide's text features Gary Verasce on the keyboard together with the voice of Theo Bleckmann. Then listen to Electra, a new music quartet from Holland, and their rendition of music by Jacob TV - called "Able to Be, and interspersed with the voice of Marilyn Monroe. These, and more.
