For more than 20 years, New Sounds has been presenting new and unusual music from inside and outside the WNYC studios. On this edition of the program, we’ll revisit some of the early years of the New Sounds Live concert series with music by David Borden, from a 1988 concert, played by the world’s first synthesizer ensemble, Mother Mallard’s Portable Masterpiece Company. There’s also music by the wide-ranging piano duo Double Edge - Edmund Niemann and Nurit Tilles – from a concert in 1989. Niemann is a long-time member of Steve Reich & Musicians, while Tilles has performed with the Mother Mallard band. Plus, Kronos Quartet performs Michael Daugherty’s Beat Boxer for string quartet and tape, and one of their African pieces from a live concert recorded in 1992.
