Inventive string sounds take center stage on this edition of New Sounds, including cuts from David Pritchard's CD Velocity (pictured), which is scored for multiple acoustic guitars along with harpsichord, flute, marimba, electric guitar, and acoustic bass guitar. The results are uniquely hypnotic and often mesmerizing. We also feature Gloria Coates's String Quartet No. 6, a work fashioned completely out of glissandos, by turns long, short, sustained, slowly modulated, abrupt, creaky, dissonant, and consonant. Also, selections by the California Guitar Trio.
