Hear electronic works on this New Sounds from three different countries - Iceland, Germany, and America, and about very specific places - Copenhagen, Milan, Borodino, near Moscow, the Okeefenokee Swamp, and an American piece about a French zoo.  Listen to electroacoustic wizard and composer Jóhann Jóhannsson’s score from an impressionistic documentary film by director Max Kestner, along with ethereal music from Sigur Ros.  There’s also music from Apparat, which is the stage name of German electronic musician Sascha Ring.  Plus, hear music from pioneering electronic musicians Tim Hecker & Daniel Lopatin, from their recent “Instrumental Tourist,” and more.
