For this New Sounds, hear a bunch of new music for brass. Listen for a canon for horns by composer and theorist Larry Polansky, who weaves mathematics and psychoacoustic science throughout his music. Also, solemn outdoor music for winds and brass by Olivier Messiaen, from “L’Ascension.” Plus, cosmic music from ambient tuba player Tom Heasley, and music by David Byrne inspired by the Dirty Dozen Brass Band from his “Music for the Knee Plays.” All this and more.

Another great show. The Tom Heasley piece was particularly lovely.
