John Schaefer's latest desk configuration - the wall

It's the end of the month, which is the time for sharing the latest releases that have come across John Schaefer's desk and into the New Sounds inbox. John Schaefer picks through the piles of CDs, the odd cassettes, 8-tracks, LPs, mini-CDs, and all other things that are not digital audio. He scrolls through the downloads (and their cryptic notes) that have flooded his inbox to find new releases worthy of showcasing in tonight's program.

What we can see from here includes music from The Crossing, the choir based in Philadelphia, from their forthcoming record, Seven Responses, along with music from Brooklyn-based composer Grant Cutler. There's also sound-art from Sxip Shirey, music drawn from a dance score from Max Richter, and ambient music from the Delia Derbyshire Appreciation Society.
