Music Inspired By Painters, Part 1

Tuesday, May 13, 2014

This New Sounds program is the first of a three-part series of music dealing with paintings and/or painters.  Inspired by (electric) violinist Tracy Silverman, and his most recent release, “Between the Kiss and the Chaos,” where each part of a suite was titled after painters and their specific paintings. Listen to Silverman’s “O'Keeffe: Red Poppy” along with his “Picasso: Guernica.” Also, hear music by and about Kurt Schwitters from Brian Eno and then from the duo Ellis Island Sound.  There’s music from Caroline Shaw and Roomful of Teeth, with her self-described “wacked-out homage to Sol LeWitt” as part of the Pulitzer Prize-winning work, “Partita,” and more.

This winning work was written for the vocal group Roomful of Teeth, who are themselves something like a world music rock concert high wire act. There’s also a toccata for Indonesian gamelan, along with contemporary takes on the 400 year old Italian dance form - the passacaglia- from Danish lute player Rolf Lislevand, and more.
