Post-Minimalist Keyboard Works

Friday, August 08, 2014

For this New Sounds show, listen to post-minimalist works  that are somewhat keyboard-centric.  Hear music by Daniel Wohl, from the musicians of TRANSIT, and featuring vocals by Julia Holter.   There’s also music from French composer Sylvain Chaveau, from a collection of works for cinema, along with another piece used in film by Clint Mansell, his “Welcome to Lunar Industries.”  Plus, the Irish composer Simon O’Connor reworks J.S. Bach for the Ergodos Musicians, and a multi-part work by Nico Muhly from his “Drones” release.

Electroacoustic Chamber Music

Thursday, March 27, 2014

Listen to electro-acoustic chamber music from the likes of Tim Hecker, Matmos, and Sylvain Chaveau on this New Sounds. Hear techno chamber music from the now Baltimore-based Matmos, and their recent "The Marriage of True Minds," which has parapsychology as its theme.  The duo builds grooves out of unusual and startling sound sources, like the processed sound of a tap dancer shuffling on a stone floor, an amplified rubber band, bagpipes, and honky tonk piano, along with vocalists.

Post-classical Chamber Music

Saturday, October 26, 2013

"Post-classical Chamber Music" might be described as music that grows out of the “Classical” tradition but strips it down to the bare essentials. We’ll hear from the Belgium-based composer Sylvain Chauveau with music for piano and a couple of strings.  Also, listen to music from the Italian pianist/composer Ludovico Einaudi, along with something from the German composer Max Richter’s record “memoryhouse.”  Plus, new music from Christian Frederickson and the late Jason Noble (formerly of Rachel’s), for a live performance/video installation, called “The Painted Bird (Part II): Amidst.”

Pianist Composers

Tuesday, August 13, 2013

Listen to music by pianist/composers in a nocturnal vein on this New Sounds program.  There’s music from the Berlin-based pianist and piano-builder Davide Martello, who may be best known for showing up with his hand-made grand piano during the protests in Taksim Square to "inspire politicians through music."  Also, listen to music from Italian pianist/composer Ludovico Einaudi along with music by the late Dutch composer Simeon Ten Holt.
