Ambient Post-Rock

« previous episode | next episode »

Monday, April 27, 2009

For this New Sounds, there's ambient post-rock music from Jon Hopkins, a British musician who writes and performs his own melody-led electronica. There's also music from the German pianist/composer Max Richter, along with something from Ludovico Einaudi's trio, Whitetree. Plus, music by the instrument-driven Chicago post-rockers Tortoise, who will be playing at the Bang on a Can Marathon this year, songs from drummer/composer Brian Blade, and more.

Had never heard (of) Max Richter before. Very evocative, even something I might call romantic minimalism (not that I want to invent yet another term...).

Thx!
