Ecstatic Music Festival: Nick Zammuto & Jason Treuting

Sunday, July 06, 2014

From the New Sounds Live concert series recorded in 2012, listen to some distinctly oddball works by Jason Treuting (of So Percussion) and Nick Zammuto (ex The Books) on this program.  There’s a multi-media work based around an instructional video for autoharp, a work involving a spelling bee, and a bucolic piece revolving around a slideshow of rude gestures.

Jason Treuting, the percussionist/composer -along with his mallets, sticks, and music - certainly gets around.   Treuting has made music with and for So Percussion, the Swedish folk-instrument wielding QQQ, the electronica duo Matmos, the Zappa-jazzy band Kneebody, and the guitarist/composer Steve Mackey, to name a few.  On this New Sounds, listen to music featuring Jason Treuting as soloist, collaborator, and composer.  There’s also music from multi-instrumentalist/composer Nick Zammuto, co-founder of the sonically and visually innovative duo the Books.

Music Built Around Violins and Cellos

Saturday, August 17, 2013

There’s plenty of music built around cello(s) and violin(s) on this New Sounds program.  We’ll start with a polyrhythmic work from Clogs, a quartet containing guitarist/composer Bryce Dessner and composer/arranger/string performer Padme Newsome.  Then, listen to music by Bryce Dessner for the American cellist Zach Miskin. Based in Paris, Miskin intends to “push the limits of the cello.”  He wants “to take the instrument out of its classical ‘box’ and travel with it through beautifully crafted loops and overdubs, solo passages in songs and in samples, while of course exploring the exotic territory of improvisation.”  We’ll hear more of his musical deviations in another work by Nick Zammuto (the Books.)

Multi-Layered High-Density

Here's music that's thickly slathered with sound. For these musicians, more is more, and more is better. David Garland also presents some music to calm down to.
