New Sounds Live: Bang on a Can PCF Concert 2013

« previous episode | next episode »

Wednesday, June 11, 2014

From the New Sounds Live concert series, listen to some of the newly commissioned works from the Bang on a Can People's Commissioning Fund Concert, recorded in Spring 2013 at Merkin Hall, as part of the Ecstatic Music Festival.  Hear multimedia composer Anna Clyne's "A Wonderful Day," incorporating the spoken and sung words of Chicago street musician Wooly from Mississippi.  Plus, Dan Deacon's "Sago An Ya Rev," a textural morphing transcription of a NASA Voyager featuring audience participation (and you all at home) via the smart phone Dan Deacon App. In preparation for tonight's New Sounds, you can download the Dan Deacon App (for iPhone or Android) and play along with his piece as you listen!

There's also music by Paula Matthusen, her "ontology of an echo," built around sounds recorded inside New York sites of historic infrastructure.  Then, hear Jóhann Jóhannsson's "Hz," inspired by a hydroelectric power plant in the composer's native Iceland. And more.
