John Schaefer's Annual Top Ten -2013 edition

Wednesday, January 08, 2014

For this New Sounds, listen to John Schaefer's completely personal and opinionated look at the ten best new music releases of 2013. There will probably be something by a Russian pianist/composer and a Tibetan singer, perhaps some music from a guitarist/composer who also plays in the National, and a vocalist/composer who practically creates choruses of herself.  Also, listen for music from the IDM world with gamelan-like percussion, as well as Indo-jazz music from a South Asian suite.

Music With Folk Roots

Friday, June 07, 2013

Listen to ensemble pieces which incorporate or draw from the folk music of several different parts of the world on this New Sounds program.  There’s music by the Alaev Family band from Tajikistan collaborating with Israeli musician Tamir Muskat from the band Balkan Beat Box.   Also, hear music that simulates the sound of Norwegian folk fiddling.  It’s the work of Princeton University professor Dan Trueman, founder of the Princeton Laptop Orchestra and a Norwegian hardanger fiddle specialist together with So Percussion.

New Releases, April 2013

Tuesday, April 30, 2013

It's that time of the month again for the new releases show on New Sounds. John Schaefer carefully sorts through the stacks of new CDs, Soundcloud files, and the highly anticipated digital submissions which have come across his desk and into his inbox over the past month to present some of the finest new releases. He'll skim off the cream. He'll pick the lentils from the ashes. You get it.

Still More Cool Stuff: Ensemble Bash, Cellos for Film, String Quartet & Gamelan

Monday, April 22, 2013

WNYC

There’s been too much quiet for too long from the impatient staff.  During the brief hiatus, the softball season began, and was then disrupted. (Go NYPR Independents!)  The recently-hobbled and still impatient-to-recover staff has had a lot of fun on the internets while trying her level best to bounce back.  Here’s a sampling of musical things that brought joy and delight while icing and elevating. Maybe someday John Schaefer will get a chance to hear them.

“Electric” Music

Sunday, August 22, 2010

For this New Sounds, hear some works that make use of the actual sounds of electricity, whether man-made or naturally occurring.  Christine Southworth uses the sounds of a Van Der Graaf Generator and two Tesla Coils in her collection called “Zap!”  Also, Annie Gosfield and Terry Riley look at the charged sounds made beyond the earth’s atmosphere.  And Johanna Beyer, an overlooked figure from the 1930s, is represented by a celestial work for early electric instruments.
