Music for string quartet takes over this New Sounds program with help from additional musical and non-musical sounds. Listen to an “extreme composition” by Brad Lubman for string quartet with electronics called “Jumping to conclusions” – with a neat section acidly titled: “My Art Has No Value.” Also, music from the understated pinhole world of Amina, the string quartet who have toured as Sigur Ros’ texture-makers, and Steve Reich’ seminal “Different Trains,” which uses vintage train sounds from the 1930s and '40s, among other taped material.
