From the New Sounds Live concerts at Merkin Hall, The Curiously Strong Winds play two works by composer/politician Phillip Bimstein .

Both of Bimstein's works incorporate "found" sounds; the natural sounds used in "Half Moon At Checkerboard Mesa" and the very unnatural sounds of Las Vegas in the piece "Casino."  That plus, music from David Byrne and Kyle Gann for this edition of New Sounds.
