Maverick Mixtapes

New Sounds

American Mavericks

Wednesday, March 28, 2012

For this New Sounds, a look at the loner iconoclastic American maverick composers who have set the stage for New Sounds.  We'll hear music from composer (and insurance businessman) Charles Ives, and something by John Cage, the sound-experimenter and subscriber to chance. (We won't hear his most notorious piece, 4'33" - it just doesn't work on the radio.)
