Hear excerpts from the very first New Sounds Live in September 1986 at Merkin Hall including "Scenes," pieces for theatre, dance, and film, by violinist/composer Michael Galasso. Listen to John Schaefer speaking with the composer about the works, his acoustic vs. electric violin, and the slight bit of amplification and delay. With Michael Galasso on violin, and his brother Paul Galasso on cello, revisit performances of Scenes I, II, III, and IX along with "John Wayne 1 & 2." There's also live performance from David Hykes and the Harmonic Choir, "Hearing Solar Winds."
