For this New Sounds, mutant trumpter/composer Ben Neill joins John Schaefer in the studio.  Lately, he’s been working together with filmmaker Bill Morrison and singer Mimi Goese on a staging of the Persephone myth – Demeter’s daughter taken by Hades to the underworld against her will. 

The multimedia music theatre work is informed by rock, layered with electronica and silent film projections, and is reimagined as a 19th century theatre troupe’s "antidote to irony."  We’ll hear songs from Persephone and catch up with Ben Neill.
