New Sounds

Orchestra of the 21st Century

Saturday, March 31, 2012

For this New Sounds, we'll focus on the orchestra of the 21st Century.  Chances are this orchestra is a bit leaner and more versatile than a  100 member-plus symphony orchestra and most likely includes electric and/or electronic instruments.  We'll hear many examples, including Alarm Will Sound, the Boston Modern Orchestra Project (BMOP) and Sujian Stevens' The BQE Project, a work for a quirky symphony orchestra. And more.

Ambient Orchestral Music

Saturday, October 22, 2011

Hear some ambient orchestral music from The Moodswing Orchestra on this New Sounds.  The Moodswing Orchestra is what drummer Ben Perowsky calls the "Sideman's Revenge" - it's an aural collage of beats, textures, and ambient-groove improvisations.

Ambient Orchestral Music

Friday, November 05, 2010

Hear some ambient orchestral music from The Moodswing Orchestra on this New Sounds.  The Moodswing Orchestra is what drummer Ben Perowsky calls the "Sideman's Revenge" - it's an aural collage of beats, textures, and ambient-groove improvisations.  We'll listen to some of it, plus music from Japanese art-noise outfit Mono's latest, "Hymn to the Immortal Wind."  There's also something from groundbreaking electric guitarist/microtonal composer Glenn Branca, and more.
