New Sounds

All Acoustic

Friday, October 11, 2013

It’s an all-acoustic program of music on this New Sounds, including music from Colin Jacobsen & the Silk Road Ensemble, violinist Hilary Hahn, and guitarist Kevin Hufnagel. If Hufnagel’s name sounds familiar, it could be because we heard from his ambient record “Transparencies” previously on New Sounds, or perhaps more likely, it is because of his work as a guitarist in Dysrhythmia, Gorguts, and Vaura, (largely metal outfits) among others. But on his latest release, “Ashland,” he has made a record of captivating and thoughtful instrumental miniatures built around the baritone ukulele, both prepared (with wooden file, hair elastic and sewing needle in the strings - nod to John Cage) and unaltered.

Violin Works

Saturday, April 07, 2012

For this New Sounds, listen to the new recording, "September Canons" featuring violinist Todd Reynolds performing a piece written for him by American composer Ingram Marshall.  It’s a soaring, searing work for violin with electronic processing, and is a "lamentation on the events of September 11, 2001."
