How Low Can You Go?

Sunday, September 29, 2013

We'll explore the deep tones of bands like Gato Loco whose lead instruments are the bass clarinet and the tuba on this New Sounds program.  There's even more from the tuba with music by Tom Heasley and some bass clarinet work by Marty Ehrlich.  We'll also hear the jazzy extensions of the bass saxophone in the works of the Maikotron Unit.

New Choral and Vocal Works

Sunday, September 15, 2013

For this New Sounds, we’ll hear from both Meredith Monk and David Hykes, two pioneers in what is now called “extended vocal technique.”  Composer, vocalist, choreographer, and innovator Meredith Monk has lately been expanding into the worlds of orchestra and string quartet.  And on her release, "Songs of Ascension" she achieves a new balance with her pairing of voice and instruments together with a combination of East and West in the shruti box (a drone instrument from India) together with string quartet.

For this New Sounds, we’ll hear from both Meredith Monk and David Hykes, two pioneers in what is now called “extended vocal technique.”  Composer, vocalist, choreographer, and innovator Meredith Monk has lately been expanding into the worlds of orchestra and string quartet.  And on her brand-new release, "Songs of Ascension" she achieves a new balance with her pairing of voice and instruments together with a combination of East and West in the shruti box (a drone instrument from India) together with string quartet.
