Memorial outside David Bowie's home in Soho, New York City

Listen to an hour of music to mark the passing of the legendary David Bowie. This man who fell to earth, a multi-instrumentalist who imaginatively experimented with countless sounds and styles, influenced generations of musicians and music-lovers, created many remarkable characters/alter egos, and eloquently put words to music while doing so - left the planet on Sunday, January 10,, 2016. It was but days after his 69th birthday and the release of what was intended to be his swan song – “Blackstar.”

Hear the more "experimental" side of Bowie's body of work for this New Sounds, along with works based on Bowie's songs by Philip Glass.
