Friday, November 09, 2012

Tonight on Soundcheck: Filmmaker Jonathan Demme is perhaps best known for Silence Of The Lambs and Rachel Getting Married, as well as the classic Talking Heads concert film Stop Making Sense. But he's back with a new music documentary about relatively unknown Italian saxophonist Enzo Avitabile. Then Deleon performs live in the studio.

New Sounds

Music from Italy

Monday, February 20, 2012

This New Sounds program is devoted to music from Italy, featuring music from Enzo Avitabile using traditional percussion - that of barrels, scythes and sticks - to drive spirits away.  We'll also listen to a requiem incorporating the accelerated ecstatic drumming of Alessandra Belloni, with its roots in pre-Christian music.  Plus music by musician and radio host Nando Citarella with a sidelong glance at Mozart.  And more.
