Program #2149

Steady State Music. No, it's not related to the obscure astronomical theory of galaxies, but rather music that displays a sense of suspension, stillness, with textures that evolve and are always in the process of a slow change. Some of examples of this beautiful and often eerie genre are featured on this edition of New Sounds, including Orlando J. Garcia's "Illuminated Shadows," Chas Smith's "An Hour Out of Desert Center," and works by Morton Feldman and Raphael Mostel's Tibetan Singing Bowl Ensemble.
