Listen to the insistent rhythms and repetitions of acoustic instruments on this New Sounds, with. Hear solo music from Kris Davis- her “Saturn Return.” Its organized lines of prepared piano evoke John Cage at first, and build into a refined assembly line. Then, listen to music by the American composer based in Berlin, Arnold Dreyblatt, and his intentionally mechanistic, “Resonant Relations,” which has clouds of overtones.  Also, there’s music with a hint of jazz from both Switzerland’s Nik Bartsch, and a New York outfit, Bizingas, led by trombonist/pianist Bryan Drye. Plus, music for player pianos by Colin Nancarrow, arranged for the six musicians of the Bang on a Can All-Stars by Evan Ziporyn.
