Mostly electronic music is on the menu for this New Sounds program. Hear detuned and ruined piano sounds, digitally sampled and made music by keyboardist, composer and improviser Annie Gosfield. Based on Bach, there's also a piece called "Sebastian’s Shadow" by Tom Hamilton. Then, listen for acoustic music from one of Canada's leading electronic music composers - Ann Southam, performed by percussionist Bevereley Johnston. What better end to the show than music from the pioneering Wendy Carlos (of "Switched on Bach" fame) - it's the recent creation "Tales of Heaven and Hell".
