Special Podcast: Indie Chamber Music, with Victoire (originally aired 5/28/09)

Wednesday, September 09, 2009

Victoire, a quirky Brooklyn-based band founded by composer Missy Mazzoli, combines strings, clarinets, keyboards and lo-fi electronics (including samples of sewing machines and answering machine tapes) to create their "minimalist, post-rock bliss.” As much a child of composer Philip Glass as of instrumental post-rock ensembles Godspeed You! Black Emperor, and Sigur Ros, the "band-semble" Victoire joins host John Schaefer for this New Sounds program to perform their electro-acoustic indie-classical music live in our studio.
