Soprano saxophonist/composer Joe Giardullo will be the guest on BEAUTY AND THE BEAT, heard on Berkshire Radio, hosted by Larry Chernicoff. The show will air live at 97.7 FM in the Berkshires and streaming at www.berkshireradio.org from 4-5:30 pm on Thursday August 16th.
Joe will be giving listeners a preview of his new recording that will be released in September on Rogue Art Records (Paris). That disc, RED MOROCCO, features an ensemble of 14 musicians playing Joe's G2 music. He'll also air some of his music for string quartet, recently recorded for Mode Records and due out in early 2008, and a new composition dedicated to sculptor Richard Serra, titled VERBS-1, for chamber orchestra.
About this music the Grammy award winning writer John Szwed has written: The results are an elegant, shimmering, ringing music, like colors spiking across the plane of a Monet canvas, or spinning like a piece of Calder's kinetic art; a constantly evolving, deeply sonic performance, collectively improvised, and decentered; a self-organizing musical system, with minimal input or constraints from outside. Giardullo is willing into existence a music that occurs beyond his control."
As Joe says, Freedom through unity, not consensus."
