Unusual Uuses of the Voice

Thursday, March 06, 2014

Listen to other ways of making music with the human voice on this New Sounds.  Hear music that occupies the space between speech and song by the late American composer Robert Ashley (he passed away this past Monday), responsible for the development of video- or television-operas. Revisit his work, “The Backyard,” featuring keyboard, tabla, and the composer’s voice, which is perhaps a comic opera about reincarnation (touching on bank robbery, cocktail lounges, geriatric love, adolescent elopement) and includes camera directions, because after-all, it is a “television-opera.”

Brooklyn's Darmstadt Series Presents Terry Riley's In C

Sunday, December 05, 2010

Often considered the first major musical work of Minimalism, Terry Riley's In C has proven to be a sustainable piece of music since its birth in 1964. Its disregard for the tedious musical demands on performers has ensured a fruitful musical platform for a long and disparate list of musicians. In this episode of Cued Up on Q2, we explore a flickering and hypnotic live performance of In C, with the unique addition of a rock drummer (Jonathon Kane of the group Swans), along with a live performance of The Roots of the Moment by Pauline Oliveros, the singular composer and accordionist who premiered In C as a performer more than 45 years ago.
