Piano and Percussion

Saturday, May 05, 2012

For this New Sounds, take in some music made by the piano, (technically a percussion instrument), with and without additional percussion and sometimes processing, as in "White Bone Country" by Australian-born, New York-based Andrew Byrne.  There's also music by Irish composer Roger Doyle, who uses piano and processing in a piece called "Cool Steel Army."  Then we'll listen to Dave King's drumming AND piano-playing from his solo record, "Indelicate."  Plus, hear piano music from Wayne Horvitz and Robin Holcomb.
