On this episode of New Sounds, hear electric violin music by Daniel Bernard Roumain. Roumain was recently named the assistant composer-in-residence at the Orchesta of St. Luke's, and is also music director of the Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Dance Company. His boundary-blurring works twist back and forth between classical and hip-hop categorizations. Continuing with the electrified string theme, there's also electric cello works by Joby Talbot, Evan Ziporyn, and Michael Gordon.
