Following up on his book Sonic Mosaics: Conversations with Composers (UA Press, 2009), composer Paul STEENHUISEN began producing the SOUNDLAB New Music Podcast to further explore the work of international contemporary music artists. Each episode includes a comprehensive interview, and musical examples related to the discussion. Hear composers and performers in their own words, discussing their creative work, ideas and influences, musical background, collaborations, and whatever else is on their mind. SOUNDLAB interviews are intended to be listened to and shared freely by inquisitive listeners.

Customer Reviews

SOUNDLAB New Music Podcasts

...“the interviews are vintage Steenhuisen (interested, agile, informed); they are edited and embedded in a considered voiced-over narrative; and, the icing on the cake, they include numerous sound samples of the actual music referenced in the course of the interview, not only works by the composer being interviewed, but seminal works by other composers arising in the conversation. It’s an absolutely brilliant way of getting not only words about the music (guilty as charged!) but a priceless taste of the sounds themselves."

David Perlman, editor, The Wholenote Magazine

Excellent Composer interview

I have only listened to one episode of this podcast, the interview with Canadian composer David Eagle. The interview is insightful and informative; we really come to know the composer's thought processes and ideas behind the pieces, the nature of the creative process, the intentions, and the breadth of techniques used. The first half is an excellent introduction to the composer's work for the average listener; as the interview progresses, details emerge that will be of particular interest to other composers. I cannot recommend this interview enough. I will definitely be listening to the rest of the series.

Thoughtful, provoking and always entertaining

An absolute must for any music lover wanting to expand their knowledge on contemporary music - the unique approach Paul has towards both his interview subjects and the choice of music demonstrated in each podcast is genius.
