Voices and Soundscapes

« previous episode | next episode »

Tuesday, October 15, 2013

Hear music from the duo, White Canvas, whose world of sound moves between song, avant-garde and improvisation, with vocal lines over guitar-based soundscapes. The title of their record is taken from texts by the Sufi mystic and poet, Jalaluddin Rumi - “There are hundreds of ways to kneel and kiss the ground.”  Also, Jocelyn Montgomery (Miranda Sex Garden) and David Lynch arrange music by the 12th-century abbess Hildegard von Bingen. Listen to Montgomery’s sublime renditions from a recording called Lux Vivens.  And more.
