For Whom the Bells Toll

Monday, April 21, 2014

From the multi-ton carillon to a tricycle bell, hear songs featuring bells, or about bells on this New Sounds. Listen to a song that reworks "Bicycle Built for Two" from Tin Hat, and a work from the group ICE (International Contemporary Ensemble) playing music by Nathan Davis.  Hear music by Pantha du Prince in collaboration with the Norwegian percussion ensemble the Bell Laboratory, involving a bell carillon, a three-ton instrument comprised of 50 bronze bells and operated using a keyboard.

John Schaefer's Annual Top Ten -2013 edition

Wednesday, January 08, 2014

For this New Sounds, listen to John Schaefer's completely personal and opinionated look at the ten best new music releases of 2013. There will probably be something by a Russian pianist/composer and a Tibetan singer, perhaps some music from a guitarist/composer who also plays in the National, and a vocalist/composer who practically creates choruses of herself.  Also, listen for music from the IDM world with gamelan-like percussion, as well as Indo-jazz music from a South Asian suite.
