New Sounds

With Dustin O'Halloran

Sunday, October 13, 2013

Dustin O’Halloran is an American pianist/composer based in Berlin, whose approach to solo piano music is geared to avoid being lumped into either the buttoned-up classical tradition or the vapid noodlings of new age.  He has developed an introspective, cinematic, perhaps “post-classical”/”post-rock” sound, which feels atmospheric, emotive and melodically direct.

Music of Caroline Shaw with Roomful of Teeth & ACME (American Contemporary Music Ensemble)

Friday, September 13, 2013

WNYC

This fall’s New Sounds Live events in October represent the first-ever survey of the music of Pulitzer Prize winner Caroline Shaw, “a musician of many sorts.” Shaw performs as a violinist with the American Contemporary Music Ensemble (ACME) and as a vocalist with Roomful of Teeth. Earlier this year, the composer/vocalist/violist/violinist became, at the age of 30, the youngest-ever recipient of the Pulitzer Prize in Music for her work "Partita for 8 Voices." Hear Shaw's remarkable music in a two-part series, featuring both of the ensembles she plays in and her interactive film/music piece called “Ritornello.” That's Roomful of Teeth on Tuesday, October 15, 2013 at 7PM and ACME on Wednesday, October 16, 2013 at 7PM at the Winter Garden of Brookfield Place (formerly World Financial Center.) Both performances will be taped for later broadcast on WNYC, and streamed live at Q2 Music.  Admission is FREE.

On this New Sounds, listen to some of the central players of the indie-chamber, or indie-classical "scene."  We'll hear from yMusic, a new music group who can move between folk, classical, and indie quite effortlessly.  We'll hear music from their latest recording, a demo of Gabriel Kahane's song cycle, “For the Union Dead,” (music by Gabriel Kahane, words by Robert Lowell), along with music from the ACME ensemble, recorded live.  Plus, another live recording from the New Sounds Live concert series at Merkin Hall featuring the 8-person strong group, Newspeak.
