Sweet Light Crude
Wednesday, February 23, 2011
For this New Sounds, listen to some "alt-classical" or "indie classical" bands, like Newspeak or the Paul Bailey Ensemble. Newspeak is an eight-piece amplified ensemble working under the direction of composer David T. Little and clarinetist Eileen Mack. Named after the thought-limiting language in George Orwell’s 1984, Newspeak explores the grey area where art and politics mix. We'll hear the group, from their "Sweet Light Crude" release, playing a work by Missy Mazzoli - "In spite of all this."
