Falling somewhere between free jazz and electric gamelan. James Harrar will be playing a variety of instruments including gamelan, xylophone, kora, and winds. Adam Reese is a composer and improviser interested in, among other things, rational tunings and rhythmic structures found in various traditional African musics. As a composer, he often writes for conventional instruments, trying to focus on specific timbres while maintaining playability in his pieces. As an improviser, he performs mostly on electric bass, but also enjoys playing with the placement of contact mics to accentuate quieter, subtler sounds that often go unheard.

In a special edition of this show, this month we featured the music of Karlheinz Stockhausen, a pioneer of avant-garde composition who passed away in December. In-studio guests Stuart Gerber and Chris Swartz brought their Stockhausen collections and knowledge and helped put together a great show reviewing the career of this iconic figure in modern music. Towards the end of the show we also played music by Kinan, Zentropy, Laromlab and Speechless.
