Ok, so last podcast you heard counting babies. Here’s a new spin...
Not too long ago, Jad was invited to contribute to In C Remixed, a compilation of remixed versions of the 1964 Terry Riley piece that quietly changed the world of classical music (and eventually pop music too). In this podcast, Jad talks to musicians Michael Lowenstern and Zoe Keating about their remixes, what they did and why. Then Jad plays Robert his own kaleidoscopic remix of In C: minimalism as seen through the lenses of fatherhood and Radiolab. For his version, Jad threw a few counting babies into the musical mix (actually, only one of the babies can count ... the one that isn’t his).
Special thanks to Amanda Aronczyk and her daughter Mina (the baby who actually counts), to Bill Ryan and the Grand Valley State New Music Ensemble, and to Silas Brown and Jennifer Munson (for their engineering expertise).
Zoe Keeting’s new album, “Into the Trees” will be available shortly. We can’t wait.
And Michael Lowenstern, in all his tweaker glory, can be found here.
