Percussive Roots, New Routes

Thursday, February 20, 2014

For this New Sounds program, hear musical works that begin with a percussive idea, maybe even a traditional one, but then end up someplace else. Listen to a work by drummer/composer Dosh (probably better known as Andrew Bird’s collaborator for the past many years), who is also a multi-instrumentalist and a looper, besides.  From his 2013 release, “Milk Money,” sample a bit of the expansive, pulsing layers of keyboard, vocal samples, and drums on Dosh’s “Legos (for Terry).” There’s also tropical jazz pop from the Danish artist Frisk Frugt (aka Anders Lauge Meldgaard) which marries folk marimba, electric guitar and toy horns, with the results emerging like a sonic road-trip to Burkina Faso by way of Denmark after having picked up a hitchhiking Terry Riley.

Indie Rock Branches Out

Saturday, May 04, 2013

For this New Sounds, listen to indie artists straddle the divide between world music, ambient and electronica as they incorporate or approximate traditional instruments, traditional sounds, and take the results well out of indie rock-land.  We'll hear from the Tradi-Mods Vs Rockers record, the latest in the Congotronics series, where carefully chosen artists have recorded homages to the original source material - landing someplace between reinventions and cover versions, and often go as far as being worthy of the dancefloor.

Sunday, January 08, 2012

Listen to a new take on minimalist icon Terry Riley’s “In C” by the Grand Valley State University New Music Ensemble and some of the most imaginative DJ's, remixers and composers around.  Insistent and propulsive, In C is based on a series of 53 interlocking phrases, repeated any number of times, that merge to form an ever-changing tapestry of sound.

In C Remixed

Monday, December 27, 2010

Listen to a new take on minimalist icon Terry Riley’s “In C” by the Grand Valley State University New Music Ensemble and some of the most imaginative DJ's, remixers and composers around.  Insistent and propulsive, In C is based on a series of 53 interlocking phrases, repeated any number of times, that merge to form an ever-changing tapestry of sound.  On a recent 2-CD collection of remixes, Pulitzer Prize-winner David Lang, ambient/hip hop master DJ Spooky, cello innovator Zoë Keating, the ubiquitous genre-hopper Nico Muhly, and many more took the raw tracks from the GVSU New Music Ensemble, and played with them on their laptops.  For this New Sounds, we’ll hear some of their results.
