Thursday, January 08, 2015

Hear songs and instrumental pieces that are informed by classical music, yet ones which expertly ride the divide between classical and post-rock, or perhaps classical and electronica.

Classical-Adjacent Music

Friday, September 20, 2013

Hear songs and instrumental pieces that are informed by classical music, yet ones which expertly ride the divide between classical and post-rock, or perhaps classical and electronica, on this New Sounds show. There’s music from vocalist and composer Julianna Barwick, who does a lot of looping of her own sound.  Listen to “Forever,” from her latest record, “Nepenthe,” recorded with Sigur Rós collaborator Alex Somers in Iceland. Barwick continues to play with layers of reverb, and even adds members of múm and the string quartet Amiina - in all, making luminous and dramatic music that is easy to get lost in.

Rhythm Composers

Sunday, January 27, 2013

Our lives are composed of rhythms--from the beat of our pulses and breathing, to our weekly and yearly schedules, we are subdivided and intersected by rhythm. David Garland presents a range of rhythms from composers such as Dan Deacon, Moondog, Ennio Morricone, Tujiko Noriko & Takemura Nobukazu, Julia Kent, and Motion Sickness of Time Travel, and Villagers.

New Releases, February 2011

Monday, February 28, 2011

It's that time again for the monthly program of new releases. John Schaefer picks through the boatloads of CDs that have flooded his inbox to find new releases worthy of showcasing in tonight's program. We'll hear from the new double-release by Todd Reynolds, "Outerborough," a collection of both his own works and pieces written for him by other folks.  Also, hopefully we will sample music from Corsican singers performing Tibetan music, Brooklyn-based Balkan brass band music, and a string quartet for extended just intonation.
