In the final installment of a three-part series, host John Schaefer presents highlights from the most recent New Sounds Live concerts at the World Financial Center. We hear the Alloy Orchestra performing their original score to the creepy silent film classic "Nosferatu." Famed for its "rack of junk" (an assemblage of peculiar objects including air-conditioner ducts, trunk springs, and plumbing pipes) the Alloy Orchestra is arguably the finest modern-day purveyor of silent movie scores in this country.
