Abstract Soundscapes - Special Podcast

Friday, January 04, 2013


For this New Sounds, listen to some abstract soundscapes from Poland, from Berlin via an Icelandic composer, and from Brooklyn-based musicians as well.  Hear a soundscape from the Berlin-based Icelandic one-woman band Kira Kira, from her record Feathermagnetik.  Also, listen to something from Brooklyn-based electronic artist Laurel Halo, featuring the voice as instrument.  Then, there's a percussion-centric work, "6," one of the number pieces from John Cage (whose 2012 centennial celebrations are still going on), and a percussive soundscape by another Brooklyn-based musician, drummer/composer Tim Kuhl.
