For this edition of New Sounds, listen to more highlights from the annual new music extravaganza, recorded live this past June of 2010 at the World Financial Center.  We'll hear the concert version of "Shelter" by founding Bang on a Can composers Michael Gordon, Julia Wolfe, and David Lang, as performed by the new music supergroup, Signal, led by Brad Lubman. 

The collaborative work harnesses the talents of filmmaker Bill Morrison (who specializes in decaying images), author Deborah Artman who wrote the libretto, and projectionist Laurie Olinder. The glissando-saturated and at times devasting score explores the concept of taking shelter from a multitude of angles – as an emotional state, through the language of building, in the aesthetic beauty of blueprints, and as comfort in each other.
