Strange and colorful ensemble music is the focus of this edition of New Sounds. We hear from the Kamikaze Ground Crew (pictured), a group comprised of such downtown vets as trumpeter Steven Bernstein (Sex Mob, Lounge Lizards), saxophonist and drummer Peter Apfelbaum (Hieroglyphics Ensemble), and drummer Kenny Wollesen (John Zorn, Tom Waits). Their vast stylistic reach is heard in the bucolic tone poem, "Morning in Bhutan." We also get a taste of Squonk Opera's "Bigsmorgasbordwunderwerk" (a musical theater work vaguely about food), and music by DAAU, Stockhausen, and Cro Magnon.
