Soundspot: Music in the Eighties

Listen
Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 70 min
Event Type: Music Program Origin: NPR

A collection of short (2 minutes or less) pieces of music highlighting avant-garde composers working in the 1980s. While most of these are pieces of electronic music there are also examples of sound poetry, instrumental improvisations, vocalises, electro-acoustic, and musique concrète. These vignettes of experimental music composed in the early 1980s provide a fascinating snapshot of the avant-garde scene at that time. Soundspot was produced by David Moss for National Public Radio.
