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.

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.”
