Hear a baroque pop-leaning commissioned work, "The Other Side of Zero" by composer/songwriter Elizabeth Ziman, leader of the pop/rock trio Elizabeth and the Catapult on this New Sounds.  

From the New Sounds Live concert series recorded at Merkin Hall this past May, it's a whole program of new art songs.  Hear the world premiere of Elizabeth Ziman 's “The Other Side of Zero,” a song cycle commissioned by WNYC and inspired by Leonard Cohen's "Book of Longing.  Ziman's indie-pop band Elizabeth & the Catapult (along with a string quartet) perform the new work.  Look forward to songs by Ed Pastorini and Gabriel Kahane, whose full interviews will be on tomorrow night’s show.
