Altered Sounds of Acoustic Guitars

Thursday, December 19, 2013

For this New Sounds program, hear music for acoustic guitar that has been altered or augmented in some way, either by splicing tape, via electronic sounds, or computer trickery of some kind.  Listen to a work from the late Michael Hedges, for acoustic guitar and tape, chopped up, layered, and with some parts even spliced in backwards.

Movement and Repetition

Sunday, September 02, 2012

For this New Sounds, it's about repetitive motion. Hear the two-piano robotic toccata and other movements from "brazen" 24-year-old composer Timothy Andres’s "Shy and Mighty." Then, listen as Ted Reichman's slow-layered repetitive piano and organ phrases slowly build on his "My Ears Are Bent." Also, Dominic Frasca's got precision and angularity on his side as he taps and arpeggiates his ten-stringed guitar (augmented with some electronic processing) into musical impossibilities/improbabilities on his "Deviations." Plus, music by Philip Glass, and more.

Flowering Youth

Saturday, October 29, 2011

Listen to music by relative whippersnappers, as we serve up youth on this New Sounds program. We'll hear from Australian composer William Gardiner, just 22, who lives in Sydney.  His music, from a release called "Onliving," has a minimalist/post-minimalist/post-rock feel.

The Pulse of Minimalism

Saturday, July 30, 2011

The pulsing rhythms of minimalism, as heard in the music of English composer Michael Nyman, and fellow Brit Jeremy Peyton-Jones.  Plus there's music from trombonist/composer Paul Bailey and the "alt-classical garage band" Paul Bailey Ensemble.  It's possible that we'll also hear from guitarist Dominic Frasca and his takeoff of music based on Philip Glass, and more.
