Alarm Will Sound, the chamber orchestra, explores the boundaries of acoustic and electronic music with their new collected "a/rhythmia." We'll hear some of their arrangements on this New Sounds. Also, pianist Christopher O’Riley offers classical variations on songs by Tori Amos, Pink Floyd, Tears for Fears and others. All of that, and a whole lot more.
