Episode #3396

Orchestral Pop

« previous episode | next episode »

Tuesday, February 11, 2014

This New Sounds program serves up orchestral pop in various guises, including brand new music from the reclusive Scott Walker, from his forthcoming release "Bish Bosch," where he uses the sounds of samurai swords and falling marbles, among other unsettling things.  There's also music from American singer/songwriter and composer Daniel James, under the name Canon Blue, from his "Rumspringa," with orchestral arrangements contributed by string quartet Amiina (most famously for being Sigur Rós’ string section.)

Then hear music jauntily layered by multi-instrumentalist and composer Jherek Bischoff whose most recent effort, "Composed," he arranged, produced and engineered achieving an orchestral sound by recording the music one instrument at a time using a single microphone and a laptop.  Plus, listen to the combination of English folk music and electronica in the sounds of Florida-based five-piece Hundred Waters, a net result of blip-twittery orchestral pop.
