Episode #3214

With Dustin O'Halloran

Sunday, October 13, 2013

Dustin O’Halloran is an American pianist/composer based in Berlin, whose approach to solo piano music is geared to avoid being lumped into either the buttoned-up classical tradition or the vapid noodlings of new age.  He has developed an introspective, cinematic, perhaps “post-classical”/”post-rock” sound, which feels atmospheric, emotive and melodically direct.

O’Halloran joins us in the studio for this edition of New Sounds, for live performances on our Steinway, and to talk us through his most recent works, both “Vorleben” (Past Life) and "Lumiere," (with the ACME folks.)
