Music of the Andes by Xochimoki, Una Ramos, William Ackerman, and Ben Tavera King on this edition of New Sounds. Plus, selections from the BBC Soundtrack "Flight of the Condor," and music from Deuter Harmonies as well.
For this New Sounds, we'll take a listen to the symphonic suite by Ben Frost and Daníel Bjarnason, "Solaris." The international Rolex Mentor and Protégé Arts Initiative's music protégé for 2010-2011, Frost, (mentored by none other than Brian Eno) joins us in the studio to present the reimagined soundtrack for the 1972 Andrei Tarkovsky film.
