Polyphonic Perversity 11/13: Film Music

This Sunday on Polyphonic Perversity (noon-2pm), we'll explore film music by composers who you don't normally think of as film composers.  So no Ennio Morricone or Bernard Hermann, just fantastic film music by Dmitri Shostakovich, Toru Takemitsu, Terry Riley, Philip Glass, Michael Gordon, and Alfred Schnittke.  This program is preparation for the upcoming Duke New Music Ensemble concerts, titled "Old Film | New Music," on Sunday, November 11, at 8 p.m. in Bone Hall in the Biddle Music Building, and on Tuesday, December 6, at 8p.m., at Fullsteam Brewery.  Free admission for both concerts.  Tune in, and check out the shows!
