Spooky stuff is what’s in store on this New Sounds program for Halloween, with an hour of musical ghost stories, portraits of vampires, and spiritual encounters. There’s music from Gary Lucas’ uncanny score for the silent film “The Golem”, “The Vampire’s Ball”, an eerie song by Iva Bittova, and Phil Kline’s “Premonition”, a work for 25 boombox tape players. Plus, hear Byrne and Eno’s “The Jezebel Spirit”, and more ghoulish fare.
