Electronic Fantasy on Now Is the Time

KucharzPastelsIt’s sound, brand-new and fantastical, on Now Is the Time, Saturday, August 2nd at 9 pm at wrti.org and WRTI-HD2. Mason Bates intersects electronica pop rhythm with indigenous percussion in Stereo Is King, while Prism by Charles Peck combines a percussion quartet with an electronic touch-pad instrument of his own invention, at Philadelphia’s University of the Arts.

Violin mashes into a surprisingly romantic Fantasy for Violin and Electronics by James Aikman, Barton McLean unleashes the hounds in Demons of the Night, and up in Woodstock, David van Tieghem wrote, recorded, and produced the quirky Waiting for the Gizmo—No. 1. Ambient Pastels of Larry Kucharz waft through the rest of the program.
