Manhattan Skyline with Empire State building in view
On today's New Sounds we have a live concert edition which includes Marc Ribot performing " Dance of the Housnsies" and "Romance". Also performing a few works are an Irish/American band called "Nighnoise".
Hear music made with drones on this New Sounds program, including music by lute player Jozef van Wissem in collaboration with Jim Jarmusch and new ambient music from Brian Eno. There's also music from a recent release simply called "Drones" by New York composer Nico Muhly. Muhly's collection of pieces contains sets of drones, one set each featuring violin, viola & piano, and is mostly acoustic. Then, listen to part a slow-build ambient suspension of a dance score for the company Chunky Move by Australians Oren Ambarchi and Robin Fox, revolving around guitar, electronic drones, and percussion.
