Listen to works for violin and cello, with electronics and without, or with piano or voice on this New Sounds.  There's music from Princeton-based composer Frances White, "The Old Rose Reader" for violin, voice, video animation, and electronics.  It's a romantic work containing stories about all varieties of roses, some famous for having been grown in Empress Josephine's garden at Malmaison.

Also, hear a work by Irish composer Donnacha Dennehy and one by Quebec composer Serge Provost both for cello and electronics.  Plus, hear works for violin with electronics or piano by German ringtone composer Max Richter, and by Minamo - which is Carla Kihlstedt of Sleepytime Gorilla Museum and Tin Hat together with improviser/composer/keyboard player Satoko Fujii.

Marc Ribot

New Music for Solo Guitar (Weekly Podcast)

For this New Sounds, we’ll have at least a double-helping of guitar music, featuring some solo works by Marc Ribot intended as music for films: some are adaptations of music he has actually written for films, others for classic silent movies that he scored for his personal amusement, still others for films of his own imagination.  These haunting and wistful pieces explore, as Ribot says, "the strange area between language and spatiality that exists partly in between music and visual image, and partly as a common property of both."

You don't "breed" roses, you watch them grow :)
