Program 533: Lost and Found Sounds

KALW Broadcast Date: October 12, 2018 | Host: Randall Wong

Michael Tanner is a composer, writer and musician from the south of England occasionally recording under the pseudonym Plinth. On this program, we will hear a set of Tanner’s sound collages from the album Collected Machine Music.

Also on the program is Phillip Bimsteim’s whimsical Cats in the Kitchen from the new Other Minds Modern Hits release Angels, Cats & Shackles. The work is scored for flute, oboe, meows, purrs, and kitchen sounds: cracked eggs, sliced onions, buttered toast, sizzling skillets, spoons, knives, pepper grinder, toaster oven, pots, pans, draining dishwater, and pretty much everything else in the kitchen “sync.”
