No I haven't.
I wondered if anyone could direct me to a few decent avant garde web radio stations? It would be nice if they played classical as well. The closest I've come is accuradio.com - Avant Garde Classical, which is really good.
By the way I just bought, didn't pay much, the Music for Lighthouses by Dave Clarkson. Check it out, I think it's pretty cool.
A wonderful show is Destination Out, on WFMU’S live stream Give The Drummer Radio, Sunday 9 Am-12pm. The dj Jeff G. plays lots of stuff that falls into the avant category, but mixes in more trad stuff as well.
Joe McPhee & Raymond Boni - Live From The Magic City (Birmingham, Alabama)
Live from the Magic City (Birmingham, Alabama), by JOE MCPHEE / RAYMOND BONI
Thanks for the tip, Sberger, I'll check it out.
I have three albums with Idris Rahman from last year,, its one,Wildflower, Ill Considered and Ill Considered Live. All are great. Ill Considered is a quartet.
Slomo - Transits
Transits, by Slomo
When I listened to the first track the first time, I thought they sure had changed their sound. I like the first track, I was just very surprised by it.
Robin Hayward, Kristoffer Lo & Martin Taxt - Microtub
I've loved everything I've heard with Kristoffer Lo. I don't always see when he has a new release. I heard of and bought his latest album last month even though it came out in March. Surprisingly, it's available to stream. It's hard to find to buy. It's widely available as a lossy download. I found one site that had it as a lossless download and IIRC a few sites with LPs. None with CDs. Lo's web site has it for sale but doesn't say what format.
Friedrich Cerha - Konzert für Schlagzeug und Orchester and Impulse für Orchester
Schlagzeugkonzert (2011) - Peter Eötvös & Wiener Philharmoniker, Martin Grubinger (percussion).
Impulse (1996) - Pierre Boulez & Wiener Philharmoniker.
That percussion concerto is perhaps my all time fav of that genre. Great disc!
Evelyn Glennie / Jon Hemmersam / Szilárd Mezei / Michael Jefry Stevens - The Core-Tet Project
Dame Evelyn Glennie - Percussion (Scotland)
Jon Hemmersam - Acoustic Guitar (Denmark)
Szilard Mezei - Viola (Serbia)
Michael Jefry Stevens - Acoustic Piano (USA)
I bought this because of Evelyn Glennie who is my favorite percussionist. The others are all free jazz/avant garde artists, none of whom I've heard before. The music is completely improvised.
Naxos is an interesting label for this music to be on. They do put out some jazz, but it's mostly pretty mainstream and this is not. My guess is that Evelyn Glennie put this together and proposed it to Naxos since she's recorded for them in the past.
Spotify: The Core-tet Project
One of my favorite genres so I'll be buying it. I just have to decide on CD or $2 mp3 download. Too bad it's not available as a lossless download anywhere I can find.
Here it is: Friedrich Cerha: Percussion Concerto & Impulse - Kairos: KAI0013242 - CD or download | Presto Classical
Thanks. I always forget to look there even though I’ve bought downloads from there before
