Episode #3075

Movement and Repetition

« previous episode | next episode »

Wednesday, May 12, 2010

For this New Sounds, it's about repetitive motion. Hear the two-piano robotic toccata and other movements from "brazen" 24-year-old composer Timothy Andres’s "Shy and Mighty." Then, listen as Ted Reichman's slow-layered repetitive piano and organ phrases slowly build on his "My Ears Are Bent." Also, Dominic Frasca's got precision and angularity on his side as he taps and arpeggiates his ten-stringed guitar (augmented with some electronic processing) into musical impossibilities/improbabilities on his "Deviations." Plus, music by Philip Glass, and more.

In fact, the Glass piece you played also is from 1986 -- written for a Twyla Tharp ballet "In the Upper Room."

The Philip Glass piece you just played later was adapted as "Liquid Days (Part One)," from Glass's 1986 song cycle, "Songs from Liquid Days."

The song has lyrics by David Byrne and was sung on the recording by The Roches.
