Angles of Repose on Now is the Time

It’s geology and music on Now is the Time, Sunday, October 7th at 10 pm. When you’re on the verge of slipping down a hill, you’re flirting with the angle of repose, and Ethan Wickman slides all around it on this Zeitgeist CD. An intercalation is a time insertion (such as February 29th) or an unexpected layer between strata, and Richard Wilson plays with those ideas in his piano work.

Homage on Now is the Time

Glen Velez

Percussion sets the scene on Now is the Time, Sunday, September 30th at 10 pm. From Michael Hersch's vast, chime-grounded symphony to drum master Glen Velez's kicky duo, percussion comes out of the background to speak a language all its own. Joel Chadabe blends percussionist Jan Williams's playing with on-the-spot electronic manipulation, giving new meaning to the word "ensemble."

Now is the Time means American contemporary music on WRTI-HD2 and the all-classical stream at wrti.org.
