Music involving film and filmmakers is the focus of this New Sounds program. Listen to music by Simon Fisher-Turner for Derek Jarman’s sly and suggestive film, “Caravaggio,” a biopic of the painter. Also, sample excerpts from "Translucence," Donna McKevitt’s intimate settings of Derek Jarman’s provocative words and images. There’s also music by Satyajit Ray, the Indian master-director and composer, from Ismail Merchant and James Ivory’s first “hit” movie, the 1965 film “Shakespeare Wallah.” Plus, "Variations on Shakespeare Wallah" by Takoma Records guitarist Robbie Basho and film music by trumpeter/synth programmer/session musician Mark Isham.

I caught the tail end of your show tonight (7/13), I think you guys were doing a thing on minimalism. Anyway, the second to last piece you played was by a New Zealand band called From Scratch. I loved their music and want more but can't find them ANYWHERE on the internet. Any suggestions?
