Up on this New Sounds program, dig into the latest from the new music ensemble Alarm Will Sound. Listen to some all-acoustic interpretations of pieces by Aphex Twin (Richard D. James), featuring such creative instrumentation as hoses, whistles, shop hardware, and piano treatments. There’s also the keyboard and stasis sounds of Ryuichi Sakamoto & Alva Noto, from the release “insen.” Plus, sample more of Zappa's "last band," the Ensemble Modern, from their recent CD of Frank Zappa’s works, “Greggery Peccary & Other Persuasions.”
