Osvaldo Golijov's Birthday Tribute

Monday, December 05, 2011

For this New Sounds, we mark the birthday of the Argentinian-born American-based composer Osvaldo Golijov, who has -not once but twice- made John Schaefer's complete biased look at the top ten records of the past decades or so.  Golijov is an artist who is not afraid of unusual sound sources, both new and old, borrowing freely, incorporating electronics, hyperinstruments and/or processing, and he also plays well with others.
