Voices and Soundscapes

Tuesday, October 15, 2013

Hear music from the duo, White Canvas, whose world of sound moves between song, avant-garde and improvisation, with vocal lines over guitar-based soundscapes. The title of their record is taken from texts by the Sufi mystic and poet, Jalaluddin Rumi - “There are hundreds of ways to kneel and kiss the ground.”  Also, Jocelyn Montgomery (Miranda Sex Garden) and David Lynch arrange music by the 12th-century abbess Hildegard von Bingen. Listen to Montgomery’s sublime renditions from a recording called Lux Vivens.  And more.

Poetry Set to Music, II

Thursday, August 22, 2013

This New Sounds is the companion program to last night's show, where we'll not be limited to English-language poets.  Look forward to texts by Rumi (Persian poet and mystic), set by Philip Glass.  Also, listen for poetry by Pablo Neruda in a setting by Osvaldo Golijov.  Plus, music by 17th century Alevi-Bektashi poets, as rendered by the band Niyaz and their vocalist Azam Ali, and more music with poetry by Pablo Neruda, and perhaps text by Rainer Maria Rilke, and more.
