European Electroacoustic Music

Thursday, July 24, 2014

Sample some music from a compilation of rare instrumental works by Irish composers and electronica artists/musicians on this New Sounds program.  The anthology, “On the Nature of Electricity & Acoustics” was curated by Daniel Figgis, and includes a work by Vincent Doherty, who combines the sounds of electronic music and American minimalism.  We’ll hear from Doherty, along with music from Sunken Foal, chiming delicate electronic music that isn’t afraid to groove.  Also, listen to entire armies of electronic guitar drone from Enda Bates, along with a shimmery electronic piece, “Error Messages,” by Linda Buckley.  And more.

Gated Music

Wednesday, August 07, 2013

Hear music made using noise gates on this New Sounds program.  How does it work?  Basically, when open, a gate allows you to hear the sound behind it, but when closed, you don’t.  (Here’s a handy tutorial about gates.) Listen to music from A. Leroy (Dick Connette) as he takes a recording of a Mardi Gras Indian song and through the use of gating, turns it into a rhythm track.  Also, hear Joshua Fried’s musical shoes, as played with drumsticks in the service of Linda Fisher’s piece, “Big Mouth,” featuring cartoon music and sound effects, from a live performance recorded back in 1990.
