Where We Live

Monday, March 24, 2014

For this New Sounds, listen to music from the band itsnotyouitsme, where Grey McMurray is the guitar-playing half and Caleb Burhans is the violin-playing half.  Hear them as that duo, and separately with some of their other projects.  One of these is a collaborative work between So Percussion and Grey McMurray called “Where (we) Live.” This series of songs is about each members' personal homes, the artistic home when they join forces, and then a questioning of all these homes by purposefully inviting the unknown to “come on over.”

Beat It

Sunday, January 12, 2014

Hear some percussion-centered works on this New Sounds show.  There's the Los Angeles-based Ironworks Percussion Duo playing a work for vibraphone and steel drum by Missy Mazzoli.  We'll also hear music by composer and steel pan virtuoso Andy Akiho, along with something from bagpiper/composer Matthew Welch's band Blarvuster, an outfit that somehow pulls in Balinese/Indonesian gamelan, Celtic influences, & minimalist licks.

Traditional Blend

Saturday, April 06, 2013

Hear unexpected blends of traditional music on this edition of New Sounds.  We'll listen to selections from bagpiper/composer Matthew Welch's band Blarvuster, an outfit that somehow pulls in Balinese/Indonesian gamelan, Celtic influences, minimalist licks, and a rock attitude to emerge with irresitible and unusual textures, both traditional and non.

New Music For Bagpipes

Sunday, October 21, 2012

Oh Danny boy, the pipes, the pipes are calling, from some pretty weird places.  Prepare to be overwhelmed with new music for for one – or more bagpipes on this New Sounds. Listen to strange and unusual mixtures of bagpipes with jew’s harp and balafon or with Brazilian carnival percussion on David Watson's release "Skirl."

All Over the World Music

Sunday, November 06, 2011

For this New Sounds, hear some world music that doesn't come from one specific part of the world, including Les Triaboliques, featuring guitarist Justin Adams and 3 Mustaphas 3 founder Ben Mandelson.  Plus, session-guitarist extraordinaire Smokey Hormel steps into the spotlight with a collection of Central African dance hits of the 1950s and 60s.  There's also a tune from Berlin's 17 Hippies, an almost untraceable blend of music from the gypsy, or Roma tradition, fused with circus chamber punk, mariachi music, and American country music.  And, not to be outdone, New York's own Blarvuster is composer Matthew Welch on Celtic bagpipes, drawing from his studies of Gamelan, up against some Afrobeat-y drumming.
