About New Sounds
New Sounds provides a place for your left and right brain to unwind at the end of day.
For this New Sounds, a look at the loner iconoclastic American maverick composers who have set the stage for New Sounds. We'll hear music from composer (and insurance businessman) Charles Ives, and something by John Cage, the sound-experimenter and subscriber to chance. (We won't hear his most notorious piece, 4'33" - it just doesn't work on the radio.)
