Remember the turn of the millennium? Musicians were going the extra mile in their programming to celebrate Y2K, as this edition of New Sounds reminds us. We hear selections from the 2000 Bang On A Can Marathon concert at the Brooklyn Academy of Music with music by Scanner ("Electropollution"); Iva Bittova (Improvisation with "Huljet, Huljet"); Pamela Z ("Bone Music"); and the Finnish shouting choir Huutajat, shouting "Ratiritiralla." (Pictured right: Iva Bittova)
