Orchestral Pop

Tuesday, February 11, 2014

This New Sounds program serves up orchestral pop in various guises, including brand new music from the reclusive Scott Walker, from his forthcoming release "Bish Bosch," where he uses the sounds of samurai swords and falling marbles, among other unsettling things.  There's also music from American singer/songwriter and composer Daniel James, under the name Canon Blue, from his "Rumspringa," with orchestral arrangements contributed by string quartet Amiina (most famously for being Sigur Rós’ string section.)

The Non-Western Orchestra

Thursday, September 26, 2013

Listen to music that features the orchestra as a non-western ensemble. Hear music from a new tribute record, “The Road to Jajouka,” a recording honoring (and with proceeds supporting) the legendary Master Musicians of Jajouka led by Bachir Attar.  Then, the orchestra provides a drone in a live recording made at the Fes Festival of the traditional call to prayer. Also, hear the orchestra as an Indian instrument with the Bombay Dub Orchestra and as an instrument of the gypsy or Roma tradition in music from the Orchestra di Piazza Vittorio.  Plus, hear Jherek Bischoff’s orchestral arrangement of the music from Congotronics by Konono No. 1, and more.

Sunday, September 15, 2013

Some songs benefit from being performed with the intimate accompaniment of just a guitar or piano. But there are also songs that need more sonic texture and color; songs that require an orchestra. David Garland presents a variety of new and old songs that use orchestras to enhance their scope, power, impact, and even intimacy.
