For this New Sounds, listen to a whole bunch of music involving the piano plus electronics, and other things.  Hear music by Marco Benevento, who adds circuit-bending and electronics to his piano works.  Plus, Omar Sosa bridges the gap between Anglo-American folk song and Afro-Cuban rhythms with his ensemble, and Daniel Bernard Roumain adds looping and processed sounds to his Hip-Hop Etudes, and more.
