Music From the Dark Side

Friday, December 13, 2013

Listen to music from the dark side for this New Sounds program. Listen to music associated with Tenebrae, the  Christian service held during Holy Week in the spring where candles are extinguished gradually until all that is left is darkness.  There’s a work by Bruce Dessner played by Kronos Quartet and featuring  Sufjan Stevens, “Tenebre,” along with the Irish choir Anúna performing Tenebrae in Gaelic.  Also, listen to nocturnes from the band Rachel’s, and a work by Missy Mazzoli.  Then, hear “Dark Was the Night,” a piece of Phil Kline’s millennial mass “John the Revelator” and a short dark piece from Brian Eno as well.

Traditionally Rooted New Irish Music

Sunday, February 13, 2011

New Music from Ireland is in the spotlight for this New Sounds program.  Ireland has seen a renaissance in the past 5-10 years or so in contemporary music, with works drawing on minimalism, post-minimalism, electronica, and world music.  To that end, we'll hear composer and heavy metal guitarist David Flynn's post-minimalist string quartet “The Cranning.”
