Electric Diamond turned rock and roll into chamber music well ahead of the postrockers. Stuart Diamond plays the Lyricon, an electronic wind controller that controls the dynamics of a synthesizer, turning it into an instrument of remarkable expression and power and Don Slepian is an internationally known electronic musician, recording artist, and concert performer. They both perform live in the WNYC Studios for this edition of New Sounds. Plus, music by Morton Subotnick and Jon Mark.
