Choral and/or Electronic Works

Wednesday, August 06, 2014

Hear electronic music informed by the sounds of choral music and the mirror image, blurring the boundaries between both. There’s choral music for a Norwegian video installation from percussionist/composer Qasim Naqvi of the band Dawn of Midi.  This music is informed by electronics, although the voices are unprocessed. Naqvi taught the singers how to embody the sonic characteristics of a monophonic synthesizer with their voices, hence the unusual vocal quality to the work.

Atmospheric Songs

Thursday, July 03, 2014

Listen to atmospheric songs with unusual textures and unexpected sounds or noises woven into them on this New Sounds program.  Hear songs from Brian Eno, Antony & the Johnsons, and Eno’s friend the poet and composer Ebe Oke.  There's also something by Susanna & the Magical Orchestra from Sweden, along with music from Bjork off of the record, "Medulla."  Then hear a song by Irish singer Iarla Ó Lionáird from his record Foxlight.  Plus, something of a murder ballad from the folkster Sam Amidon, and more.

Twilight Songs

Thursday, May 29, 2014

Hear music that inhabits a twilit world on this New Sounds, featuring a set from the remarkable Irish-American quintet The Gloaming. Comprised of the gifted Irish fiddler Martin Hayes, hardanger innovator Caoimhín Ó Raghallaigh and Irish master singer Iarla Ó Lionáird, together with Chicago guitarist Dennis Cahill, and New York pianist Thomas Bartlett (aka Doveman), the Gloaming delivers deceptively simple, spellbindingly beautiful tunes, rooted in traditional reels, jigs and ballads, yet somehow evolved – transformed, really.  SEE The Gloaming on Friday, June 20 at 7PM in the Jerome L. Greene Space, as part of the New Sounds Live Concerts.
