It is sleeping and waking on Now is the Time, Sunday, December 16th at 10 pm. Jeremy Beck’s Slow Motion duo for piano and vibes is dreamy but not really slow, Kenji Bunch’s Lost & Found, for the viola/percussion Duo Jalal, shimmers with tight constructions, and Michael Djupstrom’s piece for Mimi Stillman and Charles Abramovic is a child’s folk song.
Christopher Campbell brings in bells and electronics for a ritual procession, but the processions for Mark Winges in Luna, Nova Luna are all voices. A youth choir joins with San Franciso’s Volti for this sumptuous look at the influence of the moon.
Jeremy Beck: Slow Motion
Christopher Campbell: Ritual Waking, Ritual Sleepwalking
Kenji Bunch: Lost & Found
Mark Winges: Luna, Nova Luna
Michael Djupstrom: Sejdefu’s Mother Wakes Her
Every Sunday night at 10, Kile Smith brings you Now is the Time, all styles of contemporary concert music by living American composers on WRTI-HD2 and the all-classical stream at wrti.org.
