Hear music for ruined pianos and beat-up guitars on this New Sounds program, subtitled, "If It's Broke, Don't Fix It." Listen to Victoria Jordanova's Requiem for Bosnia, where the piano is strummed, beaten, and otherwise serves as a entire battery of percussion instruments. Also on tap is a piece by Ross Bolletter, "Nallan Void," for a piano left to the Australian elements. Plus, works by T. Sukegawa, Annie Gosfield, and Ed Gerhard.
