Flowering Youth


Listen to music by relative whippersnappers, as we serve up youth on this New Sounds program. We'll hear from Australian composer William Gardiner, just 22, who lives in Sydney.  His music, from a release called "Onliving," has a minimalist/post-minimalist/post-rock feel. 

Also, listen to something from "Speaks Volumes" by the New York-based Nico Muhly, who's worked with Philip Glass and Bjork, to name a few. There's also music from Dominic Frasca and Rich O'Meara.
