#3605: New Releases, May 2014 & Pete M. Wyer

Email a Friend

It's that time of the month again for the new releases show on New Sounds. John Schaefer carefully separates the wheat from the chaff for this show.  He'll sort through the stacks of new CDs, the Soundcloud files, and other digital submissions which have come across his desk and into his inbox over the past month to present some of the finest new releases. He'll skim off the cream. He'll pick the lentils from the ashes. You get it.  There's music from cellist Erik Friedlander, and the Dublin Guitar Quartet, who have arranged the music of Philip Glass.  Also, new recordings of music by Meredith Monk, and more. 

Plus, a visit from English composer and guitarist Pete M. Wyer, who has set the Dylan Thomas poem, "And Death Shall Have No Dominion" for synchronized headphone choir, to be performed on the streets of New York on June 21.
