    From New Sounds: Shara Nova (My Brightest Diamond) and Mic Write 

    From New Sounds
    Hand-picked music, genre free. 24/7 radio from New York City.

    1

    On Thursday, June 28, the singer-songwriter and art-rock bandleader Shara Nova (My Brightest Diamond) premieres new music for the next in our Electric Nights series at Public Arts. Mic Write, the Detroit-formed rapper, poet and performance artist, opens the evening as a special request by Nova.

    The charismatic Nova has charted an elusive trajectory, from fronting a rock band, to singing the solo part in Henryk Górecki’s Third Symphony, to leading a marching band at the Sundance film festival, to composing and starring in her Baroque opera, You Us We All, which premiered at the Brooklyn Academy of Music in 2015.

    Mic Write’s 2016 album, Onus Chain, was named by the longstanding hip hop site Okayplayer as one of the year’s most influential protest records. In his biography, Mic Write writes that “he wishes gentrification had a face so he could punch it, his stomach thinks coffee is a food group all its own, and his soul is fighting to leave everything it loves healthier, safer and more powerful than when it arrived.”

Combining the New Sounds radio show, WNYC’s Soundcheck podcast and the adventurous spirit of WQXR’s Q2 Music, NewSounds.org will be a place for discovery, conversation, insights into the creative process, and of course 24/7 music.
    The centerpiece is New Sounds Radio, an online station hosted by New Sounds founder and long-running host John Schaefer, but infused with new, emerging voices including experimental musicians Kelly Moran, Eliza Bagg and Lora-Faye Åshuvud, and tastemakers Gamall Awad and Matt Werth, along with WQXR’s Helga Davis and Terrance McKnight, and composer-guitarist Phil Kline. The station will feature an array of styles and genres – from singer Courtney Barnett to contemporary classical music ensemble Kronos Quartet, from jazz icon Henry Threadgill to the Nordic folk music of Wardruna, from electronic composer and bandleader Anna Meredith to the stunning vocals of Puerto Rico’s Ileana Cabra.
    “With almost everything ever recorded anywhere now available online, where do you start? New Sounds might be the place,” said John Schaefer. “We try to be friendly and jargon free, and gleefully oblivious of genre. Our goal is to find the artists, the songs, and the sounds that you might love – if only you get a chance to hear them. And we believe that algorithms won’t give you the same experience as a set of recommendations from real people. A friendly guide is the best way to discover new music, or music that defies easy categorization; and some of that music just might change your life.”
    “For three decades, New Sounds was one of the last bastions of free form FM programming; completely genre-free and dictated solely by the impeccable and irresistible tastes of its host,” said Alex Ambrose, Senior Producer, New Sounds. “NewSounds.org will usher that sense of discovery and unpredictability into the digital age, drawing on the best of New York’s curatorial and taste-making power.”

    Susanna by Gitte Johannessen/NTB

    From the 2018 Big Ears Festival, listen to a bewitching set of covers and originals from Norwegian singer Susanna, recorded at the historic Bijou Theatre. The magical Susanna, (whose full name is Susanna Wallumrød) was joined by Swiss harpist Giovanna Pessi, accordion player Frode Haltli, and Kentucky based multi-instrumentalist Cheyenne Mize, as the set covered American blues guitarist Elizabeth Cotton, English Baroque composer Henry Purcell, and songwriters Leonard Cohen and Nick Drake. The arrangements used Baroque harp, some strikingly cinematic accordion playing, and haunting 3-part harmonies that included her special guest Bonnie “Prince” Billy and Cheyenne Mize.

    Hear most of her set from that night, March 23, 2018, which also included arrangements of Joy Division, Nick Drake, and Lou Reed, traditional folk songs, and an original by Susanna. Our thanks to AC Entertainment for the recording of this performance and to the Big Ears Festival team.

    From New Sounds: “#4122: Music from Guitarist-Composers” 

    From New Sounds
    Hand-picked music, genre free. 24/7 radio from New York City.

    6/4/2018
    John Schaefer

    Hear some new approaches to guitar music from guitarist-composers on this New Sounds. The guitarist-composer Fabi Reyna is the founder and editor of the magazine “She Shreds” which bills itself as the only magazine dedicated to women guitarists and bassists. Her trio, Sávlia, places the guitar at the foreground of their unique blend of cumbia music and R&B. Fabi will be bringing her guitar even more to the front as a part of the 2018 New York Guitar Festival, presented in partnership with WNYC. Another guitarist featured as a part of the festival is Shana Cleveland, whose song “Change in the Ocean” by her band The Sandcastles can be heard on on this episode of New Sounds.

    Listen to guitarist-composers not only from the Americas, but from North Africa. Rooted in Tunisian folk and popular music comes the singer Sabry Mosbah joined by a fretless guitar player Nada Mahmoud. Mosbah’s band utilizes the fretless guitar and fretless bass to work these instruments into a tradition of music that is not confined to the 12 notes on a normal guitar. Their piece “Rock Mjarred” also does not fit into one category, featuring chant-like vocals paired with the classic sounds of rock.

    Moving to the Sahara, guitarist and composer Omara Moctar (known as “Bombino”) comes from the nomadic Tuareg people. His newest album is called Deran, and it celebrates his desert home – how to protect it, develop it, unify it, respect it and, above all, never forget it. In the 1980’s, Tuareg rebels founded the musical group Tinariwen, which foregrounded the electric guitar. It became a powerful symbol for the people, and Bombino follows in this tradition. Leading up to Deran’s release, Bombino stopped by the New Sounds studio to perform on Soundcheck:

    Watch and listen

    All of this, plus the interweaving rhythms of Mary Halvorson, political guitar music from Rafiq Bhatia, and more.

    From New Sounds:”Disorientation in Music – Odd Theory” 

    From New Sounds

    Lora-Faye Åshuvud Host, Odd Theory courtesy of the artist


    Lora-Faye Åshuvud
    Host, Odd Theory

    Arthur Moon by Iris Lune

    Odd Theory with Lora-Faye Åshuvud airs Tuesdays at 9 pm on New Sounds Radio. Repeats throughout the week, including Fridays at 3 pm and Sundays at 7 pm.

    This week’s episode of Odd Theory is about music that disorients. We’ll start with works that experiment with rhythmic disorientation, and end the show with a few songs that start to propose harmonic disorientation.

    We start with a new piece from Tigue, called “Quilts.” Tigue brings us to a particularly cultish tune from Radiohead, called “Videotape,” which takes us forward to the whirlwind rhythmic world of flamenco music traditions. Montreal-based Thanya Iyer’s new release, “Daydreaming” is a bridge between the two.

    Listen also to an excerpt from the Colin Currie Group’s performance of Steve Reich’s “Drumming,” along with new releases from Sarah Davachi and Wilma Archer.

    Lora-Faye Åshuvud and her band Arthur Moon have a residency on Wednesdays in May at Threes Brewing in Brooklyn.

    From New Sounds: “#2865: Terry Riley’s Autodreamographical Tales” 12/29/2009 Fresh as a Daisy Even Today 

    From New Sounds
    Hand-picked music, genre free. 24/7 radio from New York City.

    12/29/2009
    John Schaefer

    Terry Riley, a founder of minimalism, creator of the landmark work In C, and student of classical Indian vocal master Pandit Pran Nath, joins us for this New Sounds to present new work he’s done with the Bang on a Can All-Stars. We’ll hear selections from Riley’s Music from Autodreamographical Tales, where he was asked to write down his dreams and set them to music. Listen to vivid dreams about zucchini, hazy long bus rides, saints making appearances over Italian lakes (The Miracle), and songs about cannabis – featuring Indian raga-inflected vocalizing. Plus, there’ll be sampling from other new recordings from Terry Riley, and more.

    PROGRAM #2865, with Terry Riley (First aired on Fri., 11/07/08)

Combining the New Sounds radio show, WNYC’s Soundcheck podcast and the adventurous spirit of WQXR’s Q2 Music, NewSounds.org will be a place for discovery, conversation, insights into the creative process, and of course 24/7 music.
    The centerpiece is New Sounds Radio, an online station hosted by New Sounds founder and long-running host John Schaefer, but infused with new, emerging voices including experimental musicians Kelly Moran, Eliza Bagg and Lora-Faye Åshuvud, and tastemakers Gamall Awad and Matt Werth, along with WQXR’s Helga Davis and Terrance McKnight, and composer-guitarist Phil Kline. The station will feature an array of styles and genres – from singer Courtney Barnett to contemporary classical music ensemble Kronos Quartet, from jazz icon Henry Threadgill to the Nordic folk music of Wardruna, from electronic composer and bandleader Anna Meredith to the stunning vocals of Puerto Rico’s Ileana Cabra.
    “With almost everything ever recorded anywhere now available online, where do you start? New Sounds might be the place,” said John Schaefer. “We try to be friendly and jargon free, and gleefully oblivious of genre. Our goal is to find the artists, the songs, and the sounds that you might love – if only you get a chance to hear them. And we believe that algorithms won’t give you the same experience as a set of recommendations from real people. A friendly guide is the best way to discover new music, or music that defies easy categorization; and some of that music just might change your life.”
    “For three decades, New Sounds was one of the last bastions of free form FM programming; completely genre-free and dictated solely by the impeccable and irresistible tastes of its host,” said Alex Ambrose, Senior Producer, New Sounds. “NewSounds.org will usher that sense of discovery and unpredictability into the digital age, drawing on the best of New York’s curatorial and taste-making power.”

    From New Sounds: “Pulse Playlist for May” 

    New Sounds
    Hand-picked music, genre free. 24/7 radio from New York City.

    5/1/2018

    This month’s edition of Pulse – a playlist that celebrates rhythm and the many ways we experience it – is comprised of pieces that weave elaborate rhythmic structures out of seemingly simple musical threads. At heart, this music plays with the idea of iteration, pioneered by early minimalists like Philip Glass, whose Etude No. 9 is featured here, repeating and varying simple musical figures until they bloom into nuanced, unusual, and ear-catching ideas.

    Some – like Verso, kaleidoscopic track by the L.A.-based electronic musician Anenon – focuses on a single motif: speeding it up, slowing it down, fracturing it, and layering it onto itself until it glimmers with new complexity. Others – like Sumac Berries, by the multi-talented hip-hop artist MF Doom – rely on attrition, repeating snippets with a doggedness that makes you question if anything is changing at all.

    Tracks like Primavera: Seduzione, by Dutch cellist Mayke Rademakers take familiar sounds (in her case, Vivaldi’s Four Seasons) and impishly subvert their original composer’s intentions. And then there are pieces like Tokyo ‘81, by percussionist Lewis Wright, that develop solely on the virtue of their own twisted rhythmic logic.

    I hope the creativity underlying these pieces will inspire you to go back to basics and push through creative roadblocks big and small. Or just think freely, tap your feet, and groove along to the rhythms. Don’t miss great playlists like these: Follow New Sounds on Spotify, and our Pulse playlist today.

    John Schaefer

    It’s the most wonderful time of the month – a day late, due to John having been in Cincinnati for the Music NOW! Festival. Hear new releases from April for this New Sounds. From the compilation record, We Out Here, whose music director was Shabaka Hutchings, listen to new jazz from London. Hear music from the collective Kokoroko (means ‘be strong’ in Urhobo), led by trumpeter Sheila Maurice-Grey. Their contribution to the record, “Abusey Junction,” was written by guitarist Oscar Jerome on the roof of a compound in Gambia where the band spent time last year. There’s also music by Maisha, an ensemble led by drummer Jake Long, inspired by spiritual jazz like Alice Coltrane and Pharoah Sanders.

    3

    Listen to new work by cellist Clarice Jensen which “expands and confuses the familiar sound of solo cello through the use of effects pedals, multi-tracking, and tape loops recorded at variable speeds” for a result that could be an organ slow-dancing with electric violin. There’s also music from a new record by Belgium-based composer Christina Vantzou, built on acoustic instruments – piano, harp, marimba, or bells – and augmented with electronics which approaches contemplative drift, and speaks to open spaces. Plus, hear new spacious music by Estonian-born German-based pianist and composer Kristjan Randalu, guitarist Ben Monder, and percussionist Markku Ounaskari. Sample new music by Missy Mazzoli who has re-imagined her work, “Vespers for a Dark Age” as “Vespers for Violin” from violinist Olivia de Prato’s new record, Streya.

    There’s also more music from London via a collection of works released on Piano Day – London in Key. Listen to music by Anna Rose Carter (one half of Moon Ate the Dark) for piano and electronics, along with music for piano – insides and out, by Aidan Shepherd, who plays keys for the Afro-beaty, jazz/ electronica band Ruby Rushton. Plus, hear a work for piano and electronics from New York-based Andrew Shapiro.

Songs are created from poems that use the subway as the common imaginative backdrop. There will be four NYC public high schools involved: two from the South Bronx and two from Manhattan plus a professional band that combines Roy Nathanson’s Jazz Passengers and Sotto Voce. Andrew Gurian will oversee videos that will be projected for each song which are also professional student collaborations – see our website for full info: htp://www.subwaymoon.com.

    Tickets will be sold in-person at the box office on the day of the event. People who want to attend can also call 212.864.5400 and add your name to the reservation list, or just arrive on the day of the event and purchase tickets.

    Sax player Roy Nathanson, a veteran bandleader and composer, is interested in bringing the live music experience to high school students from the South Bronx and lower Manhattan. So they’ve been working up a set of songs and stories about something that ties the students and the professionals together – the NYC subways. Monday night, April 30, at Symphony Space, experience the Subway Moon project by Roy Nathanson, which combines his band of professional jazz musicians & beatboxer with student musicians from 3 city schools to present new original songs (by the students) about the subways.
