We'll explore the deep tones of bands like Gato Loco whose lead instruments are the bass clarinet and the tuba on this New Sounds program. There's even more from the tuba with music by Tom Heasley and some bass clarinet work by Marty Erlich. We'll also hear the jazzy extensions of the bass saxophone in the works of the Maikotron Unit.

Listen to works for violin and cello, with electronics and without, or with piano or voice on this New Sounds. There's music from Princeton-based composer Frances White, "The Old Rose Reader" for violin, voice, video animation, and electronics. It's a romantic work containing stories about all varieties of roses, some famous for having been grown in Empress Josephine's garden at Malmaison.
