For this New Sounds, it’s a sampling of computer music. Hear Neil Rolnick’s piece, “Digits,” - not just 0 and 1 anymore - where pianist Kathleen Supové takes her own digits, via digital looping and computer processing, on a wild ride. Listen also to Michael McNabb’s music for the ballet “Invisible Cities,” (inspired by the dream-like images from Italo Calvino’s novel of the same name), with digitally processed environmental sounds, and two live instrumental/electronic performers. Plus, there's music by computer music pioneer Paul Lansky, whose processed sounds have included his children playing kitchen utensils, and most recently, the alphabet, as recited by longtime collaborator Hannah MacKay.
