Listen for works by composer/arranger Nico Muhly from his record "Speaks Volumes" on this New Sounds. Also, Dutch avant-pop composer Jacob TV's work for saxophone quartet and ghettoblaster, "Jesus Is Coming," featuring the taped sounds of a very angry evangelist in Times Square and a small Salvation Army choir. Also, the 1978 classic "John Somebody" (remember that guy?) by Scott Johnson, back when composing meant literally hand cutting & splicing tape, and fashioning loops, in the days before digital. And more.
