On this New Sounds program, David Hykes joins John Schaefer in the studio to celebrate the CD reissue of the groundbreaking work "Hearing Solar Winds". These are the original recordings with the Harmonic Choir, revised, and digitally re-mastered by the composer. The unique space of the resonant Thoronet Abbey amplified the overtones and multiplied the sound of each voice, and the otherworldly-ness of the harmonic chant is pure, refined, and chilling.
