New Sounds takes a beating with music from Mantra Percussion, a superhuman group committed to pounding out new works and expanding the percussion repertoire.  Listen to “Science is Only a Sometime Friend,” a ringing chiming work for percussion and organ by Aaron Siegel.  Then listen to something new from percussionist/composer David Van Tieghem who has worked with Steve Reich, Laurie Anderson, Brian Eno, Talking Heads, and the Love of Lilfe Orchestra, to name a few.  His latest venture was based on recorded improvisations on a series of objects, which he then distributed to ten musicians.  They, in turn, manipulated the recordings and returned them to Van Tieghem, who then finished them into compositions.  Have a look-see, below.
