The Minimalist Influence

« previous episode | next episode »

Friday, February 07, 2014

Hear some music that shows the influence of the repetitive musical language developed by Philip Glass, Steve Reich, Terry Riley, et al. – “Minimalism.” On this edition of New Sounds, listen to music from the late Canadian composer Michael J. Baker, leader of Toronto-based arraymusic.  Baker’s music clearly shows influence of minimalism, but it’s also infused with jazz and European classical music too. Then, hear minimalism meet the jazz world in music by Swiss pianist Nik Bärtsch and his band Ronin in as well as in music by the German prepared pianist/composer Hauschka.  Plus, music from the English group called Chambr, again - not quite chamber, not quite jazz, yet with a dusting of minimlism.
