Signal & Steve Reich

« previous episode | next episode »

Sunday, September 26, 2010

For this edition of New Sounds, we’re joined by Brad Lubman , the leader of Signal, New York's new-music "supergroup," a flexible army of 13-30 musicians who combine the intimacy of chamber music with the power of a compact orchestra.

The bandsemble includes all of So Percussion, along with members of Alarm Will Sound, the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center, punkass-thrash jazz quartet Gutbucket, and other leading New York ensembles.   Signal made their giant splash at the 2008 Bang on a Can Marathon, performing music by Steve Reich.  Listen to Reich's "Eight Lines," an excerpt from "Tehillim," and something from "City Life" on this program.
