For this New Sounds, we'll hear from California-based composer Bill Alves who leads the Harvey Mudd American Gamelan and writes new music for the group. Sometimes he incorporates electronics and even Japanese shakuhachi in non-traditional tunings like just intonation. Also on the show is music from Tim Ries, Rolling Stones' sax player and sometime keyboard player. We'll hear his Tuareg-inflected version of a 1970's song by the Rolling Stones. That, and more.
