Founder of the band Art of Noise, Anne Dudley helped pioneer and develop the art of sampling. Now she’s best known perhaps for her recent film scores, like “The Crying Game.” On this edition of New Sounds, we’ll hear music with that “classical” orchestrated sound, which may not necessarily be a full symphony orchestra, but may also include string samples. There’s music from Dudley’s CD “A Different Light” on the show, along with Music for the NASA Mars Mission by Vangelis. Plus, hear Icelandic composer Hilmar Orn Hilmarsson’s soundtrack, “Angels of the Universe,” most of it created electronically off keyboards, with some violins and other acoustic instruments completing the sound. An orchestral-sounding composition by Italian Piero Milesi concludes the show.
