Children of the Otter

Saturday, July 05, 2014

For this New Sounds, hear some music that has not yet been released on CD by the Russian composer Vladimir Martynov - an epic project called “Children of the Otter.”  The work blends the ancient Tuvan sounds of the throat-singing ensemble Huun Huur Tu with a contemporary chamber orchestra and a choir singing poetry of the Russian avant-garde poet Velimir Khlebnikov (1885-1922.)

New Releases, December 2011

Friday, December 30, 2011

It's the most wonderful time of the month!  John Schaefer sifts through the deluge of CDs (and digital offerings) which has flooded his office to find a sampling of new releases worthy of showcasing in tonight's New Sounds program.  There's new guitar music, maybe best described as "zen-shred," from Ben Greenberg, aka "Hubble," (he of Zs and Pygmy Shrews) from his hypnotic solo space odyssey, "Hubble Drums."
