For this New Sounds, listen to Medieval Modernism, as Ambrose Field builds an electronic edifice on the 15th century music of Guillame Dufay. Field describes: "The fragments of original Dufay are always presented entirely unaltered, and serve as a reference point within what is new."

Hear some musical memories from the New Sounds Live concert series on this program. The California EAR Unit plays "Coming Together" by Frederic Rzewski - a socially conscious work - and one of his masterpieces. Also, Lionheart and the quartet Ethel play an excerpt from the new commercial release of "John The Revelator" by Phil Kline, a work commissioned by WNYC. Plus, music by Terry Riley & The All Stars, Peter Garland, and more.

This is another part in the series, "NightMusic" an hour of works that evoke the darkness, the stillness, the mystery and the uncertainty of night. We'll hear "Dark Was The Night" a song without words from Phil Kline's apocalyptic mass, "John the Revelator," featuring the vocal group Lionheart and the quartet Ethel. Plus, music by John Adams, his powerful and terrifying "Night Chorus" from the opera "The Death of Klinghoffer," and other works.
