New Music with Voices

Sunday, August 11, 2013

For this New Sounds, try on some layered voices in music by Julianna Barwick.  A superchoir of many Juliannas combines with warm drones and hypnotic piano to bring to mind Sigur Rós in a glacial cathedral.  Plus, there's also music from Toby Twining's "Eurydice," which began as a score for Sarah Ruhl's play of the same name, and evolved into a many voiced interpretation of the Orpheus myth.  Those works, and much more.

Diving Into the Wreck

Sunday, April 10, 2011

Adrienne Rich's poem "Diving Into the Wreck" uses the vivid metaphor of underwater investigation to say something personal and universal about uncovering and recovering an understanding of truth. David Garland presents a recording of Rich reading her poem, and uses it as a starting point for a sequence of songs that also seem to address worlds underwater and the search for truth.
