Chamber Rock. The term may seem like an oxymoron, but in fact it represents an entire strain of the contemporary music scene. On this edition of New Sounds, we feature music that combines the instruments and performing styles of classical music and rock by Krakatoa (pictured right), Rachel's, the Penguin Café Orchestra, Elliott Sharp, and more.
