For this New Sounds, hear music from the duo Moon Ate the Dark, which is Anna Rose Carter (piano) and Christopher Brett Bailey (treatments.) Carter provides soft peals of piano and Bailey weaves them together with dark washes of reverb, and other subtle electronic processing. There's also glitchy ambient music from Ryuichi Sakamoto and Alva Noto along with music from the Hilary Hahn & Hauschka release, "Silfra." And more.
