This New Sounds brings music by Canadian composer Vivian Fung inspired Indonesian gamelan, along with other works by westerners that look to that archipelago’s music.  Fung, on her record, "Dreamscapes,” draws on the fast interlocking rhythms of Balinese gamelan and to a degree - John Cage’s prepared piano- to create an eerie soundworld on “Glimpses.”

New Music from New Zealand

Saturday, July 27, 2013

New Zealand-based Jack Body has written electroacoustic compositions using field recordings from Indonesia (and has also written for the Kronos Quartet.)  We’ll hear his collage of street sounds and toys that ends with pigeons taking off, each with different sized whistles attached.  Also, there’s music from New Zealand composer Gareth Farr, who incorporates the sounds of Indonesian gamelan music into his writing.
