For Whom the Bells Toll

Monday, April 21, 2014

From the multi-ton carillon to a tricycle bell, hear songs featuring bells, or about bells on this New Sounds. Listen to a song that reworks "Bicycle Built for Two" from Tin Hat, and a work from the group ICE (International Contemporary Ensemble) playing music by Nathan Davis.  Hear music by Pantha du Prince in collaboration with the Norwegian percussion ensemble the Bell Laboratory, involving a bell carillon, a three-ton instrument comprised of 50 bronze bells and operated using a keyboard.

It Was a Voice

Saturday, April 05, 2014

For this New Sounds, we'll experience the various manipulations of the voice.  From Alvin Lucier's wonder, "I am Sitting in a Room," to the Frances-Marie Uitti & Paul Griffiths collaboration "There is Still Time," we'll listen to composers who start with a voice or text and end up producing something radically different from the original.

New Releases, June 2012, Special Podcast Edition

Friday, July 13, 2012

WNYC

It's that time of the month again for the new releases show on New Sounds. John Schaefer carefully separates the wheat from the chaff for this show.  He'll sort through the stacks of new CDs, the strange Soundcloud free-associations, and the highly anticipated digital submissions which have come across his desk and into his inbox over the past month to present some of the finest new releases. He'll skim off the cream. He'll pick the lentils from the ashes. You get it.
