Works for unexpected soloists are featured on this edition of New Sounds, as instruments commonly relegated to supporting or peripheral roles come to the fore as solo vehicles. This is particularly seen in several works for the brass family: Arkady Shilkloper's Pilatus for alphorn; Clive Smith's Ancient Future for French horn, electric guitar and devices; and Tom Heasley's ambient-flavored "Where The Earth Meets The Sky" which features a solo tuba played with various electronic transformations -- long delays, reverb and loops. Also on tap is Philip Bimstein's inimitable Half Moon At Checkerboard Mesa, for oboe, frogs, crickets and coyotes.
