Big Sounds, Small Ensembles

Wednesday, July 30, 2014

For this New Sounds program, listen to smaller groups who are capable of large expansive sounds.  There’s music by the Cinematic Orchestra, led by keyboardist/composer Jason Swinscoe, which is surely filmic in scope, while informed by jazz and electronica.  Then, sample music by bass player Skúli Sverrisson & sax player Óskar Guðjónsson, from a record that they did together, “Box Tree,” which comes folded up in a map.

Global Small Ensemble

Saturday, October 09, 2010

This New Sounds takes us around the world and then some with some works for small ensemble.  We’ll hear some non-traditional works from Argentine composer Gustavo Santaolalla, who has been lauded of late for his film scores for “Brokeback Mountain” and “Babel.”
