Movement and Repetition

Sunday, September 02, 2012

For this New Sounds, it's about repetitive motion. Hear the two-piano robotic toccata and other movements from "brazen" 24-year-old composer Timothy Andres’s "Shy and Mighty." Then, listen as Ted Reichman's slow-layered repetitive piano and organ phrases slowly build on his "My Ears Are Bent." Also, Dominic Frasca's got precision and angularity on his side as he taps and arpeggiates his ten-stringed guitar (augmented with some electronic processing) into musical impossibilities/improbabilities on his "Deviations." Plus, music by Philip Glass, and more.

Chain-Link Show

Saturday, August 28, 2010

Hear some links in a musical chain by way of a series of recordings linked by shared personnel.  We'll start with John Surman's "Sunday Morning," and hear percussionist Pierre Favre's "Mort d’Eurydice."  We'll continue on with Michel Godard & Monks of Liguge Abbey, "Repons," and then there's music from the lauded recording "Officium" by Hilliard Ensemble & Jan Garbarek, possibly even more.
