New Percussion Works

Hear a groove-centered propulsive work by San Diego-based composer, performer and improviser Christopher Adler tonight on this New Sounds - just one of several works for percussion. Hear Adler's "Ecstatic Volutions in a Neon Haze." Also, there's some percussive music about architecture from drummer/composer John Hollenbeck. Ethos Percussion Group plays his "Ziggurat, (interior)," requiring teamwork from each of the four artisans to construct the sacred structure. Also, something brand new from Gamelan Son of Lion and more.
