Latin American Poetry Settings

Tuesday, June 18, 2013

Listen to contemporary settings of great Latin-American poets on this New Sounds. Hear a combination of choir and electric guitar by built around the poetry of Chilean poet Elias Letelier by Canadian composer/electric guitarist Tim Brady.  The work, “Atacama,” is sung in Spanish, with text about metal, circuitry, atoms and not thinking about microphones.  There’s also a work by the American composer Eric Whitacre and his setting of a text by Nobel Prize-winning Mexican poet Octavio Paz.  In it, the vocal group Polyphony together with a children’s choir simulate a storm by rattling tin for thunder and finger-snapping as rain.

New Music from Montreal

Saturday, September 29, 2012

Montreal guitarist/composer Tim Brady makes dark sounds with bowed electric guitar, guitar with loops, with tapes, and with computers.  The overall effect -ambient and abstract- is intended to evoke the depths of the ocean in a work by Jean-Francois Laporte, “The Song of the Whale.”   Also, hear atmospheric electronic music from Mains de Givre(“Hands of Frost”) an enhanced duo of violin, guitar and lots of effects.
