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

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

    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: “Pulse Playlist for May” 

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

    5/1/2018
    Zev Kane

    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.

    From the New Sounds Live/Ecstatic Music Festival collaboration, hear a premiere of new works for the all-star vocal trio called ModernMedieval, and music by Julianna Barwick, separately and together, recorded at Merkin Concert Hall on April 19, 2018.

    Ecstatic Music Festival 2018

    ModernMedieval are a three-member super-group of Anonymous 4 founder Jacqueline Horner-Kwiatek, Martha Cluver, and Eliza Bagg, both from the vocal octet Roomful of Teeth. Hear them perform work by the abbess and mystic Hildegard von Bingen, along with a new work by Pulitzer Prize-winning composer, vocalist, violinist, and producer Caroline Shaw (also of Roomful of Teeth.)

    Then, composer, vocalist, and producer Julianna Barwick uses digital loops to create entire choirs out of her own voice and augments that sound with electronics and samples. Hear this totally modern but also kind of medieval soundscape. Hear Julianna Barwick’s new collaboration with the all-star vocal trio called ModernMedieval, in a work called “Adder” – not like a snake, but in the sense of adding numbers.

    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.

    From New Sounds: “#3787: Jazz With a Groove” 

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

    4/29/2018
    John Schaefer

    Matthew Shipp

    Hear jazz with a groove on tonight’s show, including piano trios with rock and/or hip-hop leanings, or with a whiff of minimalism or post-minimalism, along with groove-driven jazz drawn from other places around the world.

    Listen to an arrangement of a traditional Finnish folk song by saxophonist/composer Ochion Jewell, who has Appalachian roots in Kentucky. Then, hear trio music by French-born pianist/composer Romain Collin which might evoke associations with Steve Reich. Also, listen to British pianist/bandleader Neil Cowley, who has worked as Adele’s pianist, but in his trio setting manages to bring thrash and groove to his jazz.

    There’s more music out of the jazz world as John revisits Carla Bley’s unusual record, “Escalator Over the Hill,” which some try to label a jazz opera, but its sources are as diverse as jazz, rock and country music, Indian classical forms, hipster poetry, and blistering free-improv. There’s also chamber jazz music which looks to Southeast Asia from pianist/composer Anthony Davis from the 1980’s. Plus, hear music from pianist/composer Matthew Shipp with rhythmic nods to hip-hop as his tune, “Cohesion,” is anchored by a beatmaker FLAM’s progamming, and more.

    New Amsterdam Records is at the heart of the New Music environment

    SUPPORT NEWAM

    New Amsterdam Records

    Ecstatic Music Festival 2018

    2018 Ecstatic Music Festival

    presented by Kaufman Music Center at Merkin Concert Hall

    Merkin Concert Hall

    Thursday, Apr. 26, 7:30pm

    Margaret Leng Tan Premieres George Crumb, Suzanne Farrin, & Kelly Moran

    Margaret Leng Tan – Photo by Michael Dames

    Work-in-progress video of METAMORPHOSES, BOOK Iby George Crumb, written for and performed byMargaret Leng Tan.

    A New Sounds Live co-presentation hosted by John Schaefer
    & streamed live on http://www.NewSounds.org.

    This concert embodies the bountiful extended potential of the piano – the now “classic avant-garde” prepared piano of John Cage; George Crumb, the venerable master still discovering new means of expression within his inimitable style; and Kelly Moran’s latest contribution to the prepared piano repertoire alongside Suzanne Farrin’s bold forays into new sonic territory. All this channeled through Margaret Leng Tan, hailed by the Washington Post as “the formidable doyenne of the avant-garde piano who has built a career on upending tradition, pushing her instrument into fresh, no-holds-barred sonic worlds.”

    Tan gives the New York premiere of Metamorphoses, a major new work written for her by the seminal 20th century composer George Crumb, for amplified piano, toy piano, percussion and voice. Metamorphoses is performed with Monica Duncan’s video projections, in which atmospheric visual textures complement the music. Tan will also premiere two new EMF-commissioned pieces by young composers responding to Cage and Crumb’s influence: a work for prepared piano by Kelly Moran, and a haunting new piece by 2017 Rome Prize winner Suzanne Farrin that acknowledges not only Crumb’s important contribution to American music, but, in Farrin’s words, “also Margaret Leng Tan’s special role as the artist who has brought the piano’s insides to life on stage.” Works by Toby Twining and John Cage round out the program.

    At this concert, Kaufman Music Center will host Mode Records’ CD launch of Metamorphoses (Book l), a live recording made from Margaret Leng Tan’s performance at the Donaueschinger Musiktage (Germany) in October 2017.

    Curator’s Note from Judd Greenstein
    It’s exciting to be premiering a piece by George Crumb, one of the seminal composers of the 20th century, and to see how young composers respond to his work. His music has been an underrated influence on multiple generations of creative musicians, cutting across the classical/non-classical spectrum. And it’s a great honor to have Margaret Leng Tan, a very influential and important interpreter of contemporary and toy piano music, as a voice on this program.

    From New Sounds: “#4105: Something Is Happening With Shabaka Hutchings 

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

    1
    Shabaka Hutchings

    4/23/2018
    John Schaefer

    Barbados-raised, London-based multi-instrumentalist, composer and bandleader Shabaka Hutchings grew up with calypso and soca, reggae and hiphop. He plays a mean saxophone (or clarinet) that might involve improvisation in Sons of Kemet – a propulsive quartet of sax, tuba and two drummers; the cosmic psych-dub-funk outfit The Comet Is Coming; and in Shabaka and the Ancestors – a collaboration with South African musicians which looks to Miles Davis, Sun Ra, New Orleans music and Afro-futurism. Hutchings was also the musical director for the recent compilation We Out Here from Brownswood Recordings (DJ and producer Gilles Peterson’s indie label which encompasses soul, electronica and jazz), a snapshot of London-based “jazz”ers.

    For this New Sounds recorded on location in Southeast London, meet Shabaka Hutchings and dive into his latest record with Sons of Kemet called somewhat provocatively Your Queen Is a Reptile. From Sun Ra to Pharoah Sanders, from ECM Jazz to Calypso, Soca, and Reggae, the brilliant and prolific Hutchings braves the seagulls and touches upon being both British and Caribbean, hip hop phrasing, and resisting the urge to call his music “jazz.”

    Hear music from the group Sons of Kemet, a band whose double-drums, tuba, and sax attack swings as it explores outside of jazz borderlands, which may or may not touch upon techno, hip hop, grime, psychedelia, and/or jazz. Kemet (the Black land) is one of the names of Egypt, and the most recent record, their third, Your Queen is a Reptile, (Impulse! Label) invokes some historical figures: Nanny Of The Maroons – the free people of color in Jamaica, American abolitionist Harriet Tubman, British -Jamaican reformer Doreen Lawrence (whose son was murdered in a racist attack), along with Shabaka’s grandmother, Ada Eastman. It’s a charged and radical listen from the unintentionally provocative title which casts things into the realm of the ridiculous. (What Sun Ra called the first step in mental de-colonization – seeing structures that govern in the realm of the ridiculous.)

    Hutchings also talks of his influences, from Sun Ra, Pharaoh Sanders, to growing up with calypso, soca and reggae, along with hip hop: Nas, Biggie & Tupac. In fact, his rhythmic delivery comes from the phrasing of those rappers. Whether it’s called “flow” “swing” or “funk” his Afro-Jamaican Nyabinghi rhythms come through on My Queen Is Nanny Of The Maroons .

    Shabaka Hutchings talks further about being in a “foggy place of what is Jazz?” To someone who is familiar with either or both New Orleans or ECM label European jazz – the classification is broad and really could be anything with a saxophone that might involve improvisation. Hutchings is resisting the label “jazz” because it can be limiting. With his awareness of hip hop, Afro-futurism, Caribbean rhythms, history, and ability to incite dance parties, it’s anyone’s guess where he will adventure next.

    From New Sounds: “#4104: Altered Piano Sounds” 

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

    #4104: Altered Piano Sounds
    4/19/2018
    John Schaefer

    Listen to music that begins with the piano, but goes beyond the usual 88 keys. From the unusual sounds of strumming piano strings and rapping on the piano body, to prepared piano, and electronically altered sounds, there are works from John Cage and George Crumb to works by Kelly Moran and Poppy Ackroyd.

    Hear music from the latest release, Resolve, by pianist/violinist/producer Poppy Ackroyd, and her piece Trains. The work has a motoric quality, and was created using natural piano sounds together with electronically altered sounds. Then hear electronic additions to the piano keys in a piece by Montreal composer/pianist Jean Michel Blaise.

    From the record Eine Kleine Mitternachtmusik hear portions of George Crumb’s take on Thelonious Monk’s famous tune ‘Round Midnight. Then, listen to a small tease of a brand new work by Crumb written for “toy piano sorceress” Margaret Leng Tan – his Metamorphoses, for amplified piano, toy piano, percussion and voice, which receives its premiere next week at a New Sounds Live concert at Merkin Hall (part of the Ecstatic Music Festival.)

    Listen also to a piece by New York-based composer/pianist Kelly Moran. From her album Bloodroot, hear the arresting work, Heliconia – a drone-based work (with an e-bow on the strings), in combination with prepared piano. Margaret Leng Tan premieres a brand new work by Kelly Moran as well on that same Ecstatic Music Festival concert, April 26, 2018.

    From Dusseldorf duo Grandbrothers, hear music built from either live piano, or live processing of the piano but crafted under the influence of electronic dance music. Then, listen to a bit of a work featuring pianist and dance music aficionado Francesco Tristano and pianist/composer Chilly Gonzales.

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.”
