New Sounds Special Podcast: O+A -Requiem for Fossil Fuels (Mini-Preview)

Tuesday, November 02, 2010

WNYC

"Requiem for Fossil Fuels," is a new setting by Bruce Odland and Sam Auinger of the traditional mass.  Performed by a quartet of vocal virtuosi with the composers at the helm of an 8-channel “Orchestra of Cities,” this piece is driven by the clamorous sounds of the metropolis (site-specific recordings): traffic, construction, alarms, chatter as well as sounds of helicopters, jets and harbor sourced outside the Winter Garden in 2004 when O+A presented their sonic installation, Blue Moon, on the Plaza.
