Classical Meets Electronica

Tuesday, June 24, 2014

For this New Sounds, there’s music at the juncture of composed music, ambient and modern electronica, including a work by Annie Gosfield, for bits and pieces of metal.  From her “Flying Sparks And Heavy Machinery” release, we’ll hear driving machine samples, layers of ambient noise, crashing metal and electronic blips assembled into a nearly pulsing dance-y musical journey through a working factory.

Dramatic Works

Tuesday, April 15, 2014

Listen to music from Wires Under Tension, a NYC-based band formed by multi-instrumentalist/composer Christopher Tignor and drummer Theo Metz.  Their latest creation is called “Replicant, ” and is, yes(!) inspired by Philip K Dick's “Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?”, along with the film adaptation, “Blade Runner.”  According to the album’s site, “‘Replicant’ takes on the questions of mechanized identity, the feeling of flawed copies, and the inescapable bummer of being too self-aware.”  The music is layer after tasty layer of impossible sounds created by synth, swirls, drum licks, offered up all together as post-rock with grooves.

Music for Viola

Friday, April 04, 2014

Besides drummer jokes, there might be almost as many viola jokes tied for the lead in musical humor.  We'll put all that aside for this New Sounds program, where the viola takes center stage, not necessarily as a solo instrument in a concerto or a chamber setting.  Hear new works for viola, some for viola & electronics, and viola d'amore.  From a forthcoming record by new music champion Nadia Sirota, listen to a piece by Missy Mazzoli, "Tooth And Nail."
