On this edition of New Sounds we get a wide sampling of works for mixed electric and acoustic ensembles. Selections include "Something Terrible Is About To Happen" by Larval, a band that has been compared to King Crimson for their heavy ostinato riffs and layers of of guitars, bass, sax, strings and drums. We hear Michael Nyman's "And Do They Do," a work that consists of four linked "songs" the third of which is based on Schumann's Nachtlied Opus. 96, No. 1. We also hear Bobby Previte's "No Clue" for solo electronic drums and the Absolute Ensemble performing Gene Pritsker's "Fix."
