Funeral Music

Monday, June 10, 2013

On a funereal edition of this New Sounds, hear musical moods that one might not expect to be associated with a funeral from the world over, from West African funeral drumming to a jazz march from Norwegian musician Stian Carstensen.  Listen to music from Brooklyn Rider by Ljova paying tribute to the violinist from Tarafs de Haidouk, Culai.  There’s also Michael Gordon’s setting of Emily Dickinson poetry, as recorded live on Soundcheck, along with a funeral dance by Swedish jazz musician Bengt Berger’s “Bitter Funeral Beer.”  Plus, listen to the post-rock ambient duo Stars of the Lid, along with music by Henry Purcell arranged by Wendy Carlos used in “A Clockwork Orange.”  And more.
