#3748: Chamber Music With an Electronic Boost

Email a Friend
Composer Juhani Nuorvala

Listen to chamber music works with an electronic boost on this New Sounds show. Finnish composer Juhani Nuorvala blends American minimalism & 1980's pop on his 2009 piece, “Boost,” written for cellist and composer Juho Laitinen and Moog synthesizer. There’s also music from New York-based RighteousGIRLS, who are flutist Gina Izzo and pianist Erika Dohi along with electronics which alter, boost, and process the sounds. Listen to music written for the duo by composer/producer Pascal Le Boeuf as well as a work featuring guest musician composer Andy Akiho on steel pan. Then, hear “Exploding Stars,” a work for violin and electronics by Ireland’s Linda Buckley as well as Michael Gordon’s work for cello and electronics, “Industry.” And more.
