Soundtracks and Soundscapes are the subject of this installment of New Sounds. Composer Carter Burwell recently teamed up with director Spike Jonze and writer Charlie Kaufman, to score the film Adaptation. The results are striking, as in cuts like "The Evolution of Evolution," which features kalimba, steel drums and sly bass licks. And in advance of their upcoming four-concert series at the World Financial Center, we hear Boston's Alloy Orchestra in selections from their discs Silents and New Music for Silent Films. Rounding out the program is music by John Luther Adams and Peter Garland.
