For this New Sounds, listen to music that was inspired by Tibet. We'll hear "Karma Shadub," for violin and chorus by violinist/composer Paul Giger, based on centuries-old Tibetan Buddhist chant . Plus, music from Minnesota-based composer/guitarist Steve Tibbetts, along with music from Philip Glass's Tibetan-inspired works as well.

The cool, restrained interpretations of the Dublin Guitar Quartet performing arrangements of Glass's string quartets speak more like a virginal harpsichord with an unusually sweet voice. Listen to the entire album.

On this New Sounds, listen to new music from American composer Chris Campbell. On his latest, “Things You Already Know,” homemade instruments of propane tank drums, bowed psaltery and singing bowls are combined with guitars, cellos and drums to creep, scrape and eventually burst, then string melodies soar, and jams are proverbially kicked out.
