Cross-Cultural Music Tour

Saturday, December 28, 2013

For this New Sounds, we’ll listen to some of Charming Hostess/Jewlia Eisenberg’s strange & brilliant “The Bowls Project,” based on inscriptions from earthernware bowls buried under Jewish houses in ancient Babylonia, also called “demon bowls.”  According to Jewlia Eisenberg’s writings on the project, “Demon bowls, or incantation bowls, were inscribed with a householder’s secrets and desires and then buried under the doorway to protect her home.  The requests found in the bowls are particular, yet timeless--calling for protection for children, health after miscarriage, release from gossipy neighbors, a loyal husband, a passionate lover.”

New Sounds of Black Sabbath

Friday, July 26, 2013

Hear an hour of Black Sabbath arrangements on tonight's New Sounds show.  Listen to arrangements of "Iron Man" by heavy-jazzers The Bad Plus, a gamelan-inflected version by Charming Hostess, a folktronica version by Four Tet, and the Columbian cumbia take from Ondatrópica.  Then hear Portuguese jazz trio TGB from their record "Evil Things" (Clean Feed) covering "Planet Caravan," along with another attack on "Iron Man" by the Misfit Toys- a banjo, clarinet, drums and electric marimba.  Also, hear a giant marching band doing "War Pigs," a Bhangra-dub take on "Heaven and Hell," an intricate jazz guitar duet of "Paranoid," and a Thai version of "Iron Man." Feel free to sound off on why so many from the Ozzy oeuvre vs. just one from the Dio era.
