Today’s chamber music can include electronics, electric guitars and bass, and other sounds borrowed from pop music. It’s not just string quartets and wind quintets anymore. On this New Sounds, we sample some electroacoustic chamber music from the likes of Bing & Ruth and Build. Plus, music from English composer Andrew Poppy and his amplified orchestra. And more.
