The Wavelength
Monday February 27th, 2023 with Joe Reilly
Hour 1 - some music inspired by seeing the film Women Talking Hour 2 - new releases including a feature of the album by Mivos Quartet

I saw the film Women Talking on Sunday and it really made an impact on me. It is a beautiful yet devastating film and in some ways seems like a metaphor for how cruel, aggressive and masculine our world is and how women can lead us out of this violent morass if only we would permit them to do so. In the first hour of the program, some of the music ties into my thinking about this film - including a piece from the score created by Iceland's amazing Hildur Guðnadóttir. Here is the trailer for Women Talking: We also spin some music from artists coming to Ottawa, including Bill Frisell who will be here on March 10th and Adrian Sutherland who will be appearing in Ottawa this Saturday, March 4th. For Bill Frisell tickets: For Adrian Sutherland tickets: Then we dig into a new recording from the Mivos Quartet. The album features three different string quartets composed by Steve Reich - one of my favourite contemporary composers. These pieces are played beautifully by Mivos Quartet and fit together brilliantly on this new album. For more information about Mivos Quartet: Thanks for listening. Don't forget it's another Bandcamp Friday this Friday. All proceeds from sales on the Bandcamp website will go directly to artists and/or their independent labels.
