Classical Meets Electronica

Tuesday, June 24, 2014

For this New Sounds, there’s music at the juncture of composed music, ambient and modern electronica, including a work by Annie Gosfield, for bits and pieces of metal.  From her “Flying Sparks And Heavy Machinery” release, we’ll hear driving machine samples, layers of ambient noise, crashing metal and electronic blips assembled into a nearly pulsing dance-y musical journey through a working factory.

Piano Grooves

Thursday, June 19, 2014

For this New Sounds, listen to a few groove-based pieces for piano and electronics, including recent music from Jace Clayton (aka DJ Rupture) which looks back to an outsider figure of “Downtown” Manhattan scene in the 1980’s – Julius Eastman, the late gay African American composer, pianist, vocalist, and dancer. Eastman’s work forms the basis of Clayton’s album; two long works – one involving the “n” word, and “Gay Guerilla.” Hear the conclusion of “Gay Guerrilla” arranged for two pianos and electronics, along with the latest from Brandt Bauer Frick, and 11-musician strong Berlin-based ensemble who reproduce rhythms and sounds of electronic dance music (EDM) mostly acoustically.

Listen to acoustic drones, electronic drones, overtone singing and sometimes even words for this New Sounds program.

Also, hear music from the late William Duckworth, both acoustic and from the gargantuan, innovative web-based piece, "Cathedral," incorporating the pitchweb from the turn of the century.

“Electric” Music

Sunday, August 22, 2010

For this New Sounds, hear some works that make use of the actual sounds of electricity, whether man-made or naturally occurring.  Christine Southworth uses the sounds of a Van Der Graaf Generator and two Tesla Coils in her collection called “Zap!”  Also, Annie Gosfield and Terry Riley look at the charged sounds made beyond the earth’s atmosphere.  And Johanna Beyer, an overlooked figure from the 1930s, is represented by a celestial work for early electric instruments.
