The Road to Ruin

Tuesday, July 27, 2010

For this program, instead of the high road, New Sounds takes the road to ruin. We'll hear music by Ross Bolleter for ruined piano, which the World Association for Ruined Piano Studies (WARPS) defines as "A piano [which] has been abandoned to all weathers, say on a sheep station or tennis court, with the result that few or none of its notes sound like that of an even-tempered uptight piano."

Guitar Multiples

Sunday, May 30, 2010

For this New Sounds, we'll listen to Jeremy Peyton Jones' "18 Guitars," a work that lands somewhere between Robert Fripp's League of Crafty Guitarists and Glenn Branca's symphonies for electric guitars.
