For this guitar-centric New Sounds, listen to music from Robert Fripp and his League of Crafty Guitarists, along with something from the French guitar trio, Philharmonie. We’ll listen to an electric guitar work from Philharmonie, “The Elephant Bell-Ringers.” Also, hear Steve Reich’s entire three-movement “Electric Counterpoint,” as performed by Pat Metheny on tape.
Then, there’s the interlocking sounds of very rhythmic guitar parts by England’s Jeremy Peyton-Jones in a work written for Canadian guitarist Tim Brady, who plays all 18 parts. Plus, the daringly precise guitar and restless rhythms of North Carolina-based instrumental prog/math rock duo Ahleuchatistas.
