Listen to music built around the sound of delay, both digital and tape looping on this New Sounds program.  We’ll hear from the most recent offering by Phillip Schroeder, “A Passage Through A Dream.”  It’s a record featuring the layered sounds of piano and clarinet, processed through digital delay, resulting in "lush kaleidoscopic textures." (The composer's own words.)  Also, the otherworldly waves of drone created by Terry Riley’s use of loops and delay on "Poppy Nogood And The Phantom Band All Night Flight, Vol. 1."

Robert Fripp’s Soundscapes, Live 2010

Saturday, April 20, 2013

Electric-guitar based ambient music created in the moment by Robert Fripp is what you’ll hear on this New Sounds.  Best known as the founder and leader of King Crimson, he developed a tape-looping technique eventually dubbed “Frippertronics,” which he used when he worked with Brian Eno in the mid 1970’s.  (Fripp also formed an acoustic steel string performance-ensemble - the League of Crafty Guitarists in the mid-80’s - which has influenced countless guitarists.)
