Piano and Percussion

Saturday, May 05, 2012

For this New Sounds, take in some music made by the piano, (technically a percussion instrument), with and without additional percussion and sometimes processing, as in "White Bone Country" by Australian-born, New York-based Andrew Byrne.  There's also music by Irish composer Roger Doyle, who uses piano and processing in a piece called "Cool Steel Army."  Then we'll listen to Dave King's drumming AND piano-playing from his solo record, "Indelicate."  Plus, hear piano music from Wayne Horvitz and Robin Holcomb.

Piano and Voice (Encore Edition)

Tuesday, August 09, 2011

This New Sounds highlights evocative but enigmatic songs for that apparently simplest of combinations – piano and voice. From the most recent record by Susanne Abbuehl, hear “In the Dark Pine-Wood” with poetry by James Joyce, and something new from songwriter Lee Feldman. Also, there’s a beautiful tune - “Strange Lures” by the reclusive Ed Pastorini. Hear more music for piano and voice by Robin Holcomb with a breathtaking track, “Deliver Me.” Plus, Peter Gabriel’s “Here Comes The Flood.”
