Teach Your Children Well

For this New Sounds, listen to music by the sons and daughters of really fine musicians.  We’ll hear Shona music from the country of Zimbabwe by Baba Maraire (formerly Tendai.) His father, Dumisani (Dumi), an ethnomusicologist, was one of the first African musicians to build a grass roots movement of marimba, and came to be informally dubbed, “Godfather of Shona Music.”

New Music for Solo Guitar

Saturday, May 18, 2013

For this New Sounds, we’ll have at least a double-helping of guitar music, featuring some solo works by Marc Ribot intended as music for films: some are adaptations of music he has actually written for films, others for classic silent movies that he scored for his personal amusement, still others for films of his own imagination.  These haunting and wistful pieces explore, as Ribot says, "the strange area between language and spatiality that exists partly in between music and visual image, and partly as a common property of both."

Gyan Riley's Guitar

Sunday, April 29, 2012

Gyan Riley, composer, guitarist, and son of new music legend Terry Riley, visits the studio for a live performance, and to present a work inspired by Bach, and commissioned by the New York Guitar Festival.  Also, there's recently recorded trio music from Gyan, including experiments with improvisation, and roots in chamber music.  Plus, the Irish-African titled, yet also Indian- and Spanish-sounding stand-alone little ditty of a new work for guitar, "Irican."
