On this edition of New Sounds, we feature more genre-busting works courtesy of the the 2000 Bang On A Can Marathon concert at BAM. This includes trance music by Hassan Hakmoun, one of contemporary Moroccan music's most pioneering figures; Elena Kats-Chernin, an Australian composer with an eclectic bent; pianist Matthew Shipp, one of the most restless members of New York's avant-jazz scene; and the Massachusetts gamelan ensemble Gamelan Galak Tika which performs modern Western works for Indonesian percussion.
