        A few days late to the Earth Day Party, on this New Sounds, listen to music inspired by natural phenomena. We’ll hear songs and pieces written around themes of nature and science, - from atomic to cosmic-  and humanity’s relationships with said same.  From Bjork’s innovative and collaborative project, “Biophilia,” where instruments and apps were designed for the multimedia experience, there's a meeting of astrophysics, string theory, neurology, biology - and music.  We'll sample from this latest concept project, and more.
