Listen to more music recorded on location at the 2013 Ecstatic Music Festival at Merkin Hall, part of the New Sounds Live Concert Series.  There’s a world premiere by looping orchestrator Tyondai Braxton, with field recordings of slot machines made at a new casino in Queens.  The new two-part work by Braxton is titled "Casino Trem" and "Organ Trem" collectively, “TREMS” and effortlessly integrates the found sound with instruments.  Also, a world premiere work by Fay Kueen Wang called Weltinseln, which means “Island Universe” in German. Also, music by Shara Worden featuring the Orchestra for the Next Century conducted by Gary Schneider.

I can no longer get the player to work.
Has something changed?
As far as I know, my computer is the same.
