From

Listen to Electroacoustic music, old and new on this New Sounds program.  There’s minimalist droney dream-pop from the Montreal-based outfit Saltland - which is largely cellist Rebecca Foon (of Esmerine), as well as music from composer Ingram Marshall’s haunting multimedia work “Alcatraz.” There’s also music from the Austin-hatched drone duo Stars of the Lid alongside scores for the Werner Herzog films "Aguirre" and "Nosferatu" by the German band Popul Vuh.  Also, listen to some deeply unsettling and rather doomy electroacoustic work from Montreal artist Tim Hecker, and more.
