New Sounds

Orchestra of the 21st Century

Saturday, March 31, 2012

For this New Sounds, we'll focus on the orchestra of the 21st Century.  Chances are this orchestra is a bit leaner and more versatile than a  100 member-plus symphony orchestra and most likely includes electric and/or electronic instruments.  We'll hear many examples, including Alarm Will Sound, the Boston Modern Orchestra Project (BMOP) and Sujian Stevens' The BQE Project, a work for a quirky symphony orchestra. And more.

New Sounds

Classical Transformations

Friday, November 11, 2011

Alarm Will Sound, the chamber orchestra, explores the boundaries of acoustic and electronic music with their new collected "a/rhythmia."  We'll hear some of their arrangements on this New Sounds. Also,  pianist Christopher O’Riley offers classical variations on songs by Tori Amos, Pink Floyd, Tears for Fears and others.  All of that, and a whole lot more.
