New Music for Flutes

Saturday, May 12, 2012

Listen to new music for flute on this New Sounds program, ranging from Japanese shakuhachi to Native American flute, along with the Indian Bansuri flute and perhaps even the ocarina.   There’s also bass flutes, perhaps even some beatbox flute, and music by James Newton, where he has overdubbed flute parts which wind up sounding like a backing orchestra. Plus, music by Alan Hovhaness for flute and harp.

So Many Marimbas...

Saturday, April 09, 2011

...And only an hour of music for marimbas and marimba-like instruments from various traditions on this New Sounds program. Hear from Oreka Tx, a duo from Spain, who perform on an instrument made of cedar called the Txalaparta (it looks like pairs of wooden planks and is struck with mallets.) Also, listen to an arrangement of Steve Reich's "Electric Counterpoint" for marimba by Svet Stoyanov, a Professor of Percussion at Peabody. Plus, Super Marimba - music by Payton MacDonald, one of the founders of Alarm Will Sound. MacDonald makes a melodic stream of multiple layers of marimba, using looping machines and delay pedals, which then becomes several different simultaneous rhythmic cycles. And more.

Much Ado About Water

Sunday, August 01, 2010

What would there be without water?  For this New Sounds, there'll be concert works aplenty about - and even using - water.  Hear a piece from Karen Tanaka, called "Water And Stone" which draws on her love of nature and concern for the environment.
