Electronic Places

Tuesday, June 17, 2014

Hear electronic works on this New Sounds from three different countries - Iceland, Germany, and America, and about very specific places - Copenhagen, Milan, Borodino, near Moscow, the Okeefenokee Swamp, and an American piece about a French zoo.  Listen to electroacoustic wizard and composer Jóhann Jóhannsson’s score from an impressionistic documentary film by director Max Kestner, along with ethereal music from Sigur Ros.  There’s also music from Apparat, which is the stage name of German electronic musician Sascha Ring.  Plus, hear music from pioneering electronic musicians Tim Hecker & Daniel Lopatin, from their recent “Instrumental Tourist,” and more.

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.

Electroacoustic Music, Old and New

Thursday, October 17, 2013

Listen to Electroacoustic music, old and new on this New Sounds program.  There’s minimalist droney dream-pop from the Montreal-based outfit Saltland - which is largely cellist Rebecca Foon (of Esmerine), as well as music from composer Ingram Marshall’s haunting multimedia work “Alcatraz.” There’s also music from the Austin-hatched drone duo Stars of the Lid alongside scores for the Werner Herzog films "Aguirre" and "Nosferatu" by the German band Popul Vuh.  Also, listen to some deeply unsettling and rather doomy electroacoustic work from Montreal artist Tim Hecker, and more.

Electroacoustic Chamber Music

Listen to a preview of the forthcoming full-length record from Matmos - "The Marriage of True Minds," which has parapsychology as its theme. This techno chamber music from the now Baltimore-based 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.
