Playing tracks by
Mozo Mozo, Thee Reps, Meredith Monk, Amir Mahyar Tafreshipour, Claude Debussy and more.
This show was 6th in the global classical chart, 6th in the global noise chart, 9th in the global experimental ambient chart and 93rd in the global jazz chart.
We preview choice tracks from the forthcoming Meredith Monk/Bang on a Can and Anna Meredith/Aurora Orchestra albums, then sample new music for the Harry Partch instruments via Musikfabrik and newly unearthed Debussy via Nicolas Horvath. We bid farewell to Seattle’s beloved William O. Smith and close with a rare playback of Eye Music’s 50-minute recording of Ichiyanagi’s landmark graphic composition Sapporo. Some poppy minimalism from Thee Reps, an improv track from the intriguing Austrian band Mozo Mozo, and a newly recorded string quartet by Amir Mahyar Tafreshipour round out the playlist. Radical new music from the Northwest and beyond!
