Program #2065

On this edition of New Sounds, we take a further look at DJ Spooky's Optometry, a disc that has been proclaimed an instant classic by many critics. This sprawling sonic essay, which merges DJ culture seamlessly with jazz, ambient, and other styles, is called by its creator "jazz for the genre splice generation." Along with laptop and turntables, DJ Spooky is joined by pianist Matthew Shipp and violinist Daniel Bernard Roumain, among other guest musicians. We also hear works by Richard Lainhart, Steve Roach & Jeff Fayman, and Amnon Wolman.
