This episode showcases new albums by Thea Musgrave (the dean of Scottish composers), avant-rocker Brandon Seabrook, live-sampling specialist Jeff Morris, and Fazıl Say (the acclaimed concert pianist who's also a modern composer with a neoromantic bent). Plus, we begin our traversal of Klangforum Wien’s remarkable new Scelsi Revisited album featuring commissioned works by Murail, Haas and others inspired by the preserved ondiola improvisations of composer Giacinto Scelsi. This week we hear Murail's contribution, following an introduction to Scelsi's music (including his penchant for Tibetan chant).
We also sample improv tracks from Joe McPhee and Ig Henneman, pay our respects to Julian Bream, and look back at two classics from Davidovsky and Takemitsu that were premiered 50 years ago. The program concludes with an hour-long set of new dark ambient tracks by Fossil Aerosol Mining Project, Scott L. Miller, Doug Haire and Daniel Menche. Radical new music from the Northwest and beyond.
