From the New Sounds Live Concert Series, hear music from Paul Lansky, who is probably best known as a computer music composer (one who caught the attention of Radiohead), recorded at the World Financial Center in November of 2007. We'll listen to a suite of works for percussion quartet, featuring the coordinated beatings of the group So Percussion. Plus, there's also music by the Czech violinist, vocalist, composer, and improviser Iva Bittova from the Bang on a Can People's Commissioning Fund Concert recorded at Merkin Hall a few weeks ago.
