Post-Minimalist Keyboard Works

Friday, August 08, 2014

For this New Sounds show, listen to post-minimalist works  that are somewhat keyboard-centric.  Hear music by Daniel Wohl, from the musicians of TRANSIT, and featuring vocals by Julia Holter.   There’s also music from French composer Sylvain Chaveau, from a collection of works for cinema, along with another piece used in film by Clint Mansell, his “Welcome to Lunar Industries.”  Plus, the Irish composer Simon O’Connor reworks J.S. Bach for the Ergodos Musicians, and a multi-part work by Nico Muhly from his “Drones” release.

Post-Rock & Soundtracks

Wednesday, August 14, 2013

Listen to some post-rock music on this New Sounds program.  Hear a collaborative film score by the Austin, TX band, Explosions in the Sky, who, together with David Wingo, have made the soundtrack to the independent film “Prince Avalanche.”  It’s a step back from the dramatic swells of the “Friday Night Lights” era and never builds to those crescendos, yet still works as a piece of aural cinema.

The Post-Rock Film Scores Of Clint Mansell

Tuesday, April 09, 2013

Clint Mansell has created film scores for the better part of two centuries, perhaps most famously for Darren Aronofsky films like The Black Swan, Requiem for a Dream, The Wrestler, and The Fountain. But that’s not where the composer thought he was headed when he first broke into the world of music. Hear Clint Mansell talk about his career with Soundcheck and listen to a full live performance from our sister station Q2.
