For this New Sounds, listen to music by Rich O’Meara and Richard McCandless for percussion and electronics. Combining the broad sound spectrum of percussion and electronics with the intimacy of chamber music, McCandless's works are fully composed, while O'Meara's can sometimes blend composed and improvised elements. We'll hear McCandless’s "Voyager" for percussion and tape along with O’Meara's "Island Spinning" for vibraphone and four recorded marimbas. And much more.
