The Batsto River in the New Jersey Pine Barrens. (Mwanner/Wikipedia)

On this edition of New Sounds, hear music to celebrate Earth Day. There’s a helping of music by Tasmanian composer and naturalist Ron Nagorcka, who uses the sounds of forest surroundings, like water, birds, and wind. Hear music from Steven Feld’s Rainforest Soundwalks, an aural collection of purely environmental sound with a stunning depth of field. Plus, listen to excerpts from Elodie Lauten's Gaia Cycle, an electronic work based on a correspondence with the rotation of the earth and the yearly cycle, and much more.
