Revisiting New Sounds

What year is this, anyway? On this edition of the program, hear electronically-altered music from some of the composers who were part of the nightly New Sounds diet back in the mid-1980s, and who are now going strong again. Listen to watery, ambient chill space music by K. Leimer from a recent release called "the Listening Room." Then there are works with different drones - one by Chas Smith, his "October 68," where he pulls the country twang of guitar strings like taffy, stretching the sound into a folksy drone, and another piece with hypnotic repeating drones by Harold Budd. Plus, hear the 1986 work by Daniel Lentz, "Time's Trick."
