#3655: New Music for Didjeridu

Email a Friend
From

For this New Sounds program, listen to music for didgeridoo (also spelled didjeridoo)  - the indigenous Australian drone wind instrument made out of a hollowed-out tree branch.  From a brand new recording, hear music for string quartet and didjeridu by the late Australian composer Peter Sculthorpe, featuring the Del Sol String Quartet and didjeridu virtuoso Stephen Kent.  There's also music from Kent's other more ambient project, Lights in a Fat City, featuring didjeridoo, percussion and electronics.  Then listen to music from Philip Glass for organ, speaker, and two didjeridoos, combining the sounds of the European church and that of Australia.  Plus music for ambient didjeridoo, cello and electronics.
