There’s Isadora Duncan Award-winning music tonight on New Sounds - a work by San Francisco based composer, performer and bandleader Beth Custer, called “What the Body Knows”, from her "Maverick Strain" score. We’ll sample some of her other country music electronic tango-like songs and instrumentals from major dance productions on that release. Plus, there’s more new music by Kamikaze Ground Crew co-leader and all-around underground veteran Doug Wieselman. Music from his score for the Oscar-winning documentary Long Way Home and other new recordings of his soundtrack compositions have just been released, and we’ll listen to some selections from that CD as well.
