Elliott Sharp, 3 Projects (2010)



David Weinstein hosts composer Elliott Sharp in a whirlwind tour of his late 2010 releases and the stories that orbit them. Spectropia Suite (NEOS) features The Sirius String Quartet and singer Debbie Harry in a soundtrack to the sci-fi movie directed by Toni Dove. In Binibon (HENCEFORTH) Sharp's fifth opera, the composer displays all his performing tools including guitars, saxophones, bass, synthesizers, clarinets, percussion, drum and sample programming. With a libretto by Jack Womack, it documents East Village culture of the early 80s including drugs, murder, and music. The third project is Reflexions (IDIOLECT) a series of duo improvisations with koto player Michiyo Yagi. Recorded in 2005, it has finally been released. (48 minutes)
