This New Sounds program highlights the connection between new music and rock music. Listen to a five-movement work by Steve Reich, “Radio Rewrite” based on music by Radiohead, performed and co-commissioned by Alarm Will Sound. The specific Radiohead songs are "Jigsaw Falling into Place" and "Everything in Its Right Place."

Reich spoke about the piece and its connection to Radiohead's Jonny Greenwood on WNYC's Soundcheck in 2013 with host, John Schaefer: 

Also, listen to works by Clogs, music from the string quartet Brooklyn Rider written by Padma Newsome of Clogs, and a work written by Brooklyn Rider’s violinist Colin Jacobsen, featuring the singular vocalist Shara Worden. Note to those keeping score, together with his cello-playing brother Eric, Colin Jacobsen also co-founded the flexible New York-based ensemble, The Knights. Plus, listen to music by Caroline Shaw and Kitty Brazelton, who both inhabit a few musical worlds. Shaw was the recipient of the 2013 Pulitzer Prize for Music, and is a violinist and vocalist besides, while Brazelton is a flutist, bandleader, vocalist and composer.
