Music Based on Eastern European Singing

Wednesday, May 07, 2014

The Mystery of the Bulgarian Voices, a mid-80s recording, introduced the wider world to the plaintive, haunting sounds of Balkan singing.  We’ll hear that original recording, as well as music from Ukraine's Mariana Sadovska with the women’s choir, Kitka, from their phenomenal record "The Rusalka Cycle." Also, hear Ingram Marshall's orchestral work, “Hidden Voices”, incorporating the sounds of Balkan funeral laments. Plus, music from two distant musical Central Asian cousins, the Bulgarian Choir Angelite and Huun-Huur-Tu, performing music together based on Bulgarian, Tuvan, and Russian traditions.  And more.

Musical Delay Tactics

Thursday, February 13, 2014

Hear music made with tape loops, digital loops, and/or digital delay on this New Sounds show, with works from Ingram Marshall & Moby, along with a dreamy guitarscape from Evan Caminiti.  Caminiti, who is also one half of twang flecked drone duo Barn Owl, reins in the twang and ominously increases drone on his most recent effort, “Dreamless Sleep.”

Delay Music

Sunday, January 19, 2014

Listen to music built around the sound of delay, both digital and tape looping on this New Sounds program.  We’ll hear from the most recent offering by Phillip Schroeder, “A Passage Through A Dream.”  It’s a record featuring the layered sounds of piano and clarinet, processed through digital delay, resulting in "lush kaleidoscopic textures." (The composer's own words.)  Also, the otherworldly waves of drone created by Terry Riley’s use of loops and delay on "Poppy Nogood And The Phantom Band All Night Flight, Vol. 1."

Glass-y Music

Thursday, September 19, 2013

Hear fragile and glassy music on this New Sounds program, including low-fi, 1-bit electronic music by New York-based composer Tristan Perich.  Listen to the collision of math, physics, and code, in Perich’s “Observations,” for two crotales.  (Incidentally, 1-bit is the lowest possible digital representation of audio.)  Then there’s also music by Michael Hearst (he of One Ring Zero), from his latest, “Songs for Unusual Creatures.

Requiem-Based New Music, Part I

Saturday, June 29, 2013

For this New Sounds program, the first of a two-part series, we'll listen to many works that draw inspiration from the text of the requiem mass, but have come from different parts of the world. For starters, there's Mistico Mediterraneo, a collaboration involving three different artists: Sardinian trumpet player Paolo Fresu, Italian bandoneonist Daniele Di Bonaventura and Corsican all-male choral group A Filetta.  We'll hear music from the principal composer of A Filetta, Jean-Claude Acquaviva, with his “Rex tremendae” and “Figliolu d’ella”  from a requiem written in 2004.  And much more.
