For this New Sounds, hear some music from violinist/composer Jenny Scheinman, along with something new from violinist Carla Kihlstedt & percussionist/keyboardist Matthias Bossi.  These two, Kihlstedt & Bossi, have a new record of music for dance, Still You Lay Dreaming: Tales for the Stage, II, a companion album to their 2009 release, Ravish, and Other Tales for the Stage.  Also, indie chamber music from Clogs, and chamber folk from the Penguin Cafe Orchestra (not to be confused with the newly-formed "Penguin Cafe," which features founding member Simon Jeffes' son, Arthur.)
