There’s music inspired by Sci-Fi books & film for this New Sounds program.  Listen to the internet opera and sonic book by Mendi & Keith Obadike, “The Sour Thunder,” which consists of two simultaneous stories; Mendi traveling with a friend to study Afro-Dominican culture and tracing the slave trade through the Dominican Repulic, and that of a state called Solaika Dast, where scent is the method of communication. There’s also recent music by Londoner Pete M. Wyer, his “Planet 49,” a response to the Danny Boyle film, “Sunshine” about a mission in 2057 to set off a nuclear bomb to reignite our dying sun.

This New Sounds explores music that plays with ideas of texture, drone and space.  Hear Norwegian composer/drummer Erland Dahlen conjure dark experimental soundscapes mostly based around his Slingerland Rolling Bomber drum kit from World War II. Dahlen plays with an arsenal of electronics, small percussion, and even a saw, overlaying them into haunting and hypnotic atmospheres, enhanced by the drum tones of the rosewood drum kit.

Music that mixes instrumentals with both sung and spoken text is what we'll hear on this New Sounds program.  Listen to the latest from saxophonist and rabbi Greg Wall’s Later Prophets, "Ha’Orot." It combines the spiritual writings of Hebrew poet Rabbi Avraham Itzchak HaCohen Kook with Wall's blend of traditional Jewish folk and jazz.  All that and more.
