The Manifold Curiosity (Music)

In tribute to the expansive, intense, and beautiful Kayo Dot composition, 'The Manifold Curiosity' reflects a kind of grand inquiry into the progressive music tradition of the last fifty years. While spinning influential and familiar artists, the show highlights lesser-known, iconoclastic, and even esoteric players. Their ability to accessibly utilize polarity (in melody/dissonance), explore big dynamic ranges, and compose in unorthodox or shifting time signatures proves their invaluable contributions to the respective rock, pop, jazz, and experimental scenes.
