For this New Sounds, we'll dip into the many flavors of electronic music.  Hear some glitch electronica from Taylor Deupree + Stephan Mathieu along with some classic electronic minimalism from Cluster.  Also, listen to an electronic re-creation of an opera by 12th century composer Hildegard von Bingen, electronic “turntablist guitar” from Andre La Fosse, and more.

Unusual Collaborations (Weekly Podcast)

On this New Sounds program, hear music from Iraqi oud master Rahim AlHaj, in collaboration with accordion virtuoso Guy Klucevsek, from a fascinating double album of cross-cultural collaborations, called “Little Earth.”  AlHaj studied with Munir Bashir, but was also trained in Western classical music, and on this global effort was joined by folks as diverse as Cape Verde’s Maria de Barros, Bill Frisell, Peter Buck, and Mali’s Yacouba Sissoko.
