Delays & Loops

Saturday, June 22, 2013

For this New Sounds, we’ll hear music that incorporates looping and delay devices, first by digging into Todd Reynolds’ new double-CD, “Outerborough.”  Reynolds plays a work by Phil Kline, “A Needle Pulling Fred,” and a piece by David T. Little that samples a woman’s voice talking about being in the military and the Don’t Ask Don’t Tell policy.  Then listen to something new from the one-woman band, guitarist/looper/delay-artist Julia Crowe, from her latest, "Empire of Light."
