Sample some music from a compilation of rare instrumental works by Irish composers and electronica artists/musicians on this New Sounds program.  The anthology, “On the Nature of Electricity & Acoustics” was curated by Daniel Figgis, and includes a work by Vincent Doherty, who combines the sounds of electronic music and American minimalism.  We’ll hear from Doherty, along with music from Sunken Foal, chiming delicate electronic music that isn’t afraid to groove.  Also, listen to entire armies of electronic guitar drone from Enda Bates, along with a shimmery electronic piece, “Error Messages,” by Linda Buckley.  And more.
