Program #2162

Experimental Musical Instruments is an organization devoted to interesting and unusual musical instruments of all sorts. For many years its leading activity was the production of a quarterly journal devoted to the topic. While the magazine ceased publication in 1999, the organization continues with a variety of instrument-related activities, including the production of books and CDs. We hear examples of its activity with works by Richard Cooke, One Ring Zero, and John Gzowski. Also, we hear soundscape music by Russia's Nick Sudnick.
