This week, the wonderful Nathalie Joachim joins us to talk about joining eighth blackbird, open rehearsals at MCA Chicago, collaborations with Flutronix, Sleeping Giant, and more.
This week on SoundNotion the crew gets political! We talk musical appropriation, race issues, social justice and what (if anything) classical music has to say about that. Plus, making sense of the critical response to new opera.
This week on SoundNotion, the panel is joined by singer, songwriter, composer, performer Corey Dargel. We discuss his new album OK It’s Not OK out on the New Amsterdam, the simple clarity of straight tone with a mic, and the trouble with singing in 11/8.
eighth blackbird’s Lisa Kaplan joins the panel to discuss the group’s recent Grammy win, the Golijov-Bergeman “scandal”, out-of-this-world Kickstarter patronage, and much more!
