Hear some ambient orchestral music from The Moodswing Orchestra on this New Sounds. The Moodswing Orchestra is what drummer Ben Perowsky calls the "Sideman's Revenge" - it's an aural collage of beats, textures, and ambient-groove improvisations. We'll listen to some of it, plus music from Japanese art-noise outfit Mono's latest, "Hymn to the Immortal Wind." There's also something from groundbreaking electric guitarist/microtonal composer Glenn Branca, and more.
