Listen to a new recording featuring vocalist Shara Worden of My Brightest Diamond together with the new-music supergroup Signal (led by Brad Lubman) performing Snider’s remarkable song cycle, “Penelope” on this New Sounds.  It’s a haunting 60-minute song cycle for female voice, chamber orchestra, and electronics that limns the boundaries between art song, chamber folk and post-rock. 


There’s also a dark work from Irish composer Linda Buckley, Galeic word for black/dark.  Recorded by Trio Scordatura.  Plus, from Missy Mazzoli’s multi-media mini-opera, a work for piano and electronics called “Isabelle Eberhardt Dreams of Pianos,” performed by “exploding pianist” Kathleen Supové.
