Episode Info:

This coffee break continues with music infused with mechanical sounds beginning with Toccata for Percussion Instruments by Carlos Chaves. Then we veer into how traditional instruments can be used to make nontraditional sounds in the surprising String Quartet #1, "Protestation Quartet" by Gloria Coates. We push the sounds of artificially altered sounds in Christian Wolff's For Piano with Preparations. We sing the body electric with David Borden's hip moog-infused Droneland, then finish with the pulsating Piano Sonata no. 8 by Laurie Altman. Here is a discussion with the composer Laurie Altman with Clipper Erickson (the performer on the last piece) about the collaborative process. Contact the show at
