    Norway's Jaga Jazzist Performs 'Starfire'

    Norway's Jaga Jazzist Performs 'Starfire'

    Jaga Jazzist is an eight-piece Norwegian instrumental ensemble that draws inspiration from jazz, vintage funk, Krautrock and shoegaze. But it adds up to something different: a mesmerizing, exploratory and overwhelmingly energetic sound. Led by composer Lars Horntveth, the band first came together in 1994, and to date has released seven full-length albums. They are a favorite of the Mars Volta, who invited them to perform at the All Tomorrow's Parties Festival in 2005.

    We join the members backstage at Le Poisson Rouge for an exclusive interview and performance of their song "Starfire."

    Bruce Brubaker and Francesco Tristano's Philip Glass Piano Versions

Brubaker is known for his performances of music by John Adams and Meredith Monk whereas Tristano alternates classical performances with beat-driven electronic dance music. On “The Glass Piano Versions” the two mix their influences with Philip Glass’s piano works, infusing the music with free improvisation, ambient and live electronic beats.

    GABI on Fear, Vulnerability and the Human Voice

    GABI on Fear, Vulnerability and the Human Voice

    The music of GABI is hard to pin down. Chopped vocal fragments float and cluster among classical orchestration, found sounds and abstract electronic textures. Taking cues from Meredith Monk and Björk, her music uses the power of the human voice to create strange, densely-textured soundscapes.

    Daniel Wohl on Physical Performance and Electronic Sound

    Daniel Wohl on Physical Performance and Electronic Sound

    For composer Daniel Wohl, the distinction between a physical performer and an electronic sound is inconsequential. While he builds on the traditions of heady electronic pioneers like Morton Subotnick and Paul Lansky, he also draws inspiration from pulse-driven dance beats and minimalist chamber music. On this episode, Wohl discusses the art, appeal and challenges of performing electroacoustic music live.
