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.

Voices and drums

Arvo Pärt’s latest album on ECM offers new chamber orchestra versions of earlier vocal works. We give it a spin, alongside minimalist Andean salsa by Mirlitorrinco, joyful but heterodox choral music by Philip Corner, and the first recording of Abyss and Caress, a thorny trumpet concerto by the American bohemian Lucia Dlugoszewski (1931–2000). Plus we pay our respects to Francis Dhomont, Yehuda Yannay and Tony Oxley (with help from Cecil Taylor). And our 50 years ago in the avant-garde feature uncovers January 1974 premieres by Hans Werner Henze and the drumming duo of Milford Graves and Andrew Cyrille. A last look at Elsa Bergman’s graphically-inclined Playon Crayon and Kate Gentile’s extraterrestrially-inclined b i o m e i.i albums, and fixed-media soundscapes by Seattle’s Steve Layton and Xiu Xiu's Hyunhye Seo round out the program.
