Synths and Sounds Unheard

The Sound Barrier : Playlist for Sunday 13 November 2016

Artist | Track/Song Name | Album Title | Label/Distributor | Comments

Tonight's show begins with an interview with Peter Knight and Tamara Saulwick. The interview was part of Speak Percussion's Sounds Unheard education program, and the interviewers were Mungo Moje-O'Brien and Lewis de Zoete, who have been undertaking an internship at PBS as part of the program. Kaylie Melville also joined us, along with Lewis and Mungo, to talk about the program. Throughout the interview some excerpts of work by Peter and Tamara were also played:

  1. The Boat in the Mist | Daughter's Fever (featuring Peter Knight)
  2. Florence St 1 | Peter Knight (from the album Allotrope)
  3. Afterall | (excerpt from Permission to Speak by Chamber Made Opera)

The second part of the show featured James Gardner and Nick Wilson, talking about Synthposium along with some of the synthesisers that will be talked about and demonstrated there. We listened to a few examples of synthesiser music during the discussion. We heard short excerpts from:

  1. ARIES from SIRIUS (music of Karlheinz Stockhausen)
  2. Synthi demo with Tristram Cary
  3. Chronometer (music of Harrison Birtwistle)
  4. The Sea Devils (from Doctor Who)
  5. Whose Should Are You Looking Over Anyway (with Curved Air)
  6. Dance of Dawn (music of Priscilla McLean)
  7. On the Run (Pink Floyd)

The show finished with the complete recording of COSMIC PULSES by Karlheinz Stockhausen, realised by Antonio Pérez Abellán and Kathinka Pasveer. Recording available exclusively from The Stockhausen Foundation for Music and played with their permission.
