Detuned instruments, machines and warped 78 records: all among the fascinations of composer Annie Gosfield. She believes in the inherent beauty and musicality of unusual sources, and the instrumentation of her works can range from solo violin and satellite transmission to machines found in a German factory. Gosfield's journey down the unbeaten path has included collaborations with cellist Joan Jeanrenaud and the Bang on a Can All-Stars. Tonight, we hear Four Roses, including Gosfield playing a sampling keyboard. Also, music of Keith Jarrett and Timo Alakotila.

Some of the music during the wee hours of the morning is getting a little bizarre.
Just this very morning around 2:00 am you played something so creepy that I had to change the station.
It sounded like out of Silence of the Lambs when the girl was crying down in the well.
Are you now trying to appeal to members of the occult and/or serial killers??

Please, keep to the classics. I am trying to sleep, not have nightmares!!
