Composer Damien Geter.

Coming up on this week’s Modern Notebook with Tyler Kline: Damien Geter’s String Quartet No.1, titled “Neo-Soul,” is an ode to the genre of music that became popular in the 1990s that put a new spin on the classic soul sound. It’s music that revolves around creating a specific vibe.

Then: Icelandic composer Bara Gisladottir’s work “Hringla” forges a fascinating sound world of buzzing multiphonics, local sonic phenomena, and fragile, shadow-like double bass harmonics. There’s also a layer of electronic elements which sample sound in real time to blur the real and the virtual.

Featuring music by Carmen Braden, Greg Caffrey, Emer Kinsella, Salina Fisher, Bo Liu, Margaret Brouwer, and others; and performances by cellist Matt Haimovitz, Hard Rain SoloistEnsemble, flutist Taylor Irelan with pianist Andrea Feitl, violinist Alexi Kenney, Iceland Symphony, and more.
