Episode 12: Pushing The Envelope Podcast (6-17-10)

6Aug

Greetings!

I've been quite busy, to say the least.  Finished up my employment with the U.S. Census, purchased my books for school which starts in a couple of weeks and have started my reading in the glorious field of Speech/Language Pathology.  (A recommended course of action for those, like myself, have been out of the world of graduate academia since the 80's.)

Arguably, more important, attending two wonderful shows at MASS MOCA featuring the Bang On A Can Summer Music Festival (http://bangonacan.org/summer_festival).  First was a celebration of International George Crumb Day which featured an afternoon gallery performance of "Music for a Summer Evening (Makrokosmos III)" for 2 pianos and 2 percussionists, followed by a concert performance which included Crumb's string quartet, "Black Angels".

The following weekend was the 6 hour Bang On A Can Marathon.  Highlights for me included performances of:  Tom Johnson's, "Narayana's Cows",  Ted Hearne's, "Katrina Ballads",  Michael Gordon's. "Yo, Shakespeare", and Steve Reich's, "Double Sextet".  Should you have the opportunity to attend, it would certainly be worth your time.  (Here is a listing of the full summer festival performance schedule:  http://bangonacan.org/summer_festival/performance_calendar )

As always, please tell your friends about "Pushing The Envelope", the more subscribers, the merrier. (Don't forget to check us out on Facebook and MySpace.)

Until next time,

Take care,

Joel

Greetings!

This week's show has a bit more of a jazz/fusion bent to it due to the fact I grabbed the bag of CDs I would normally take to do a fill in for someone else's show.  You could do worse.... ;>p

Take care.

Note:  Due to a minor technical glitch, all the music is in place, but mysteriously, I do not reappear after the second set to back announce the set, so please refer to the playlist for info on all the music played.
