New Sounds Live Silent Film Scores

Sunday, July 21, 2013

From the Alloy Orchestra's most recent three-night residency at the World Financial Center in February 2011, we'll listen to selections from some of their original film scores including Douglas Fairbanks' "The Black Pirate."  The Alloy Orchestra is just an orchestra of three -Terry Donahue, Roger Miller, Ken Winokur- whose instruments include their famous "rack of junk" (scrap metal transformed into percussion) together with electronic synthesizers and more.  We'll hear their original scores for the 1920 Buster Keaton film, "One Week"  and the 1917 Chaplin film, "Easy Street," and more.

For this second installation of Robert Fripp's Soundscapes as part of New Sounds Live, we present performances that were recorded on the evenings of both Dec. 3 and Dec. 4, 2010.  These performances might possibly have been the last major public outings for the English guitarist, composer, and founder of the prog-rock band, King Crimson.

WNYC Commissions

Sunday, January 15, 2012

For this New Sounds, we'll hear the early music vocal group Anonymous 4 performing works commissioned by WNYC by both Richard Einhorn and Steve Reich.  Richard Einhorn’s “A Carnival of Miracles,” an exploration of different kinds of freedoms - religious, scientific, artistic, cultural, sexual, and political - was composed for A4 and 2 cellos.  The title refers to the medieval idea of Carnival, a time when the social order is ritually upended and all is allowed.

"Undercurrents" Win us Over
