Music

With Michael Schell

Creative and improvised music from the Northwest and around the world with host Michael Schell. Seattle’s finest and longest-running radio program devoted to the musical avant-garde.

Hello Mat Maneri, goodbye Carla Bley

Flotation Device pays tribute to the late Carla Bley, the beloved and trailblazing composer, pianist and bandleader, with a retrospective that focuses on her most exploratory works, including her jazz opera Escalator over the Hill, one of American music's most unique landmarks, and an apt testament to her versatility whose contributors ranged from Don Cherry and Charlie Haden to Jack Bruce and Linda Ronstadt.

We also preview Mat Maneri’s upcoming Earshot Jazz appearance with an exclusive interview where he discusses his embrace of the viola as an improvisational vehicle, the personal impulses behind his new Ash quartet album with its reflections on loss and the distortions of memory, and the unusual Oedipe Redux project he’s just released with Lucian Ban, which channels George Enescu’s operatic setting of Sophocles’s trilogy. An exploration of the intrinsic nature of Matthew Shipp’s new solo album, and a look back to the simultaneous October 1973 unveilings of Takemitsu’s only work for gagaku orchestra, Shostakovich’s only setting of Marina Tsvetayeva, and Frank Zappa’s legendary Roxy band, round out the program. Creative and improvised music from the Northwest and around the world with host Michael Schell.
