On this New Sounds, listen to pieces combining guitar(s) and strings with quasi-orchestral sounds, including a preview of the forthcoming record by guitar virtuoso Kaki King (pictured left), that features the string quartet, ETHEL.  The tune we've picked is "The Fire Eater," from Kaki's "GLOW," due out in October.  Also, hear "Dream Lightly," a work by New York-based composer Keeril Makan in collaboration with the American Composers Orchestra that uses the chiming and harmonics of electric guitar.

Piano and Voice (Encore Edition)

Tuesday, August 09, 2011

This New Sounds highlights evocative but enigmatic songs for that apparently simplest of combinations – piano and voice. From the most recent record by Susanne Abbuehl, hear “In the Dark Pine-Wood” with poetry by James Joyce, and something new from songwriter Lee Feldman. Also, there’s a beautiful tune - “Strange Lures” by the reclusive Ed Pastorini. Hear more music for piano and voice by Robin Holcomb with a breathtaking track, “Deliver Me.” Plus, Peter Gabriel’s “Here Comes The Flood.”
