Post-Rock & Soundtracks

Wednesday, August 14, 2013

Listen to some post-rock music on this New Sounds program.  Hear a collaborative film score by the Austin, TX band, Explosions in the Sky, who, together with David Wingo, have made the soundtrack to the independent film “Prince Avalanche.”  It’s a step back from the dramatic swells of the “Friday Night Lights” era and never builds to those crescendos, yet still works as a piece of aural cinema.

New Music with Voices

Sunday, August 11, 2013

For this New Sounds, try on some layered voices in music by Julianna Barwick.  A superchoir of many Juliannas combines with warm drones and hypnotic piano to bring to mind Sigur Rós in a glacial cathedral.  Plus, there's also music from Toby Twining's "Eurydice," which began as a score for Sarah Ruhl's play of the same name, and evolved into a many voiced interpretation of the Orpheus myth.  Those works, and much more.

New Music from Montreal

Saturday, September 29, 2012

Montreal guitarist/composer Tim Brady makes dark sounds with bowed electric guitar, guitar with loops, with tapes, and with computers.  The overall effect -ambient and abstract- is intended to evoke the depths of the ocean in a work by Jean-Francois Laporte, “The Song of the Whale.”   Also, hear atmospheric electronic music from Mains de Givre(“Hands of Frost”) an enhanced duo of violin, guitar and lots of effects.
