New Sounds

Between Rock and Classical

Wednesday, May 21, 2014

For this New Sounds, there’s music that falls into the cracks between rock and classical, between popular music and contemporary chamber music.  Listen to music by Yann Tiersen, probably best known for the “Amelie” soundtrack.  Hear selections from his latest, “∞”(Infinity), which is a collection of songs, stories and instrumentals made mostly in Iceland and incorporating Breton and Icelandic, but also Faroese and English.

Duos and Small Ensembles

Saturday, March 08, 2014

For this New Sounds, we’ll hear composed works for duos and small ensembles that veer toward the ambient.  We’ll hear from the amplified, processed and looped duo itsnotyouitsme, who are violinist Caleb Burhans and guitarist Grey McMurray, and a piece called “The Ghosts Among Us.”  There’s also trio music (keyboards, accordion, sometimes vibes, and a clarinet) by keyboardist and composer Phillip Schroeder whose music might be best described as ambient.
