Alarm will Sound Alarm will Sound (Carl Socolow)

Listen to acoustic music inspired by electronica –encompassing everything from danceable grooves and IDM (intelligent dance music) to downtempo or ambient music – but completely performed on acoustic instruments on this New Sounds.  Hear music originally by Aphex Twin, re-imagined and arranged for the acoustic instruments of the 20-piece chamber orchestra Alarm Will Sound.  Also, listen to music by Dawn of Midi, who re-create the sounds of electronic music using only acoustic instruments. Plus, hear music from the Brandt Brauer Frick Ensemble from Germany along with the classical guitars of the Mobius Trio, pianist Matthew Shipp, and more.
