Lapis Lazuli at Kremer Pigmente. (WNYC)

This New Sounds offers music from a few of the eight member Common Sense Composers Collective (San Francisco/New York City-based.) From a collaborative recording with the New Millennium Ensemble, listen to a lovely work with some sighing glissandos, “Alternative Music” by Randall Woolf.  Also from the collective, there’s a chamber music work by Carolyn Yarnell, “Lapis Lazuli.” Plus, hear music by Canadian composer and guitarist Tim Brady, featuring electric guitar, electronics and the Penderecki String Quartet.

A Musical Travelogue (special podcast)

There’s an hour of music for far-off places on this New Sounds program.  Listen to a work written by Princeton professor Paul Lansky, called “Travel Diary.”  From a new recording by the Meehan/Perkins Duo, the work is a "kind of meditation on travel particularly for those who don't do it that much." Parts were inspired by an actual cross-country trip taken by the composer and his family, wrong turns and a younger child asking "Are we there yet?"
