Nick Luscombe with New York new music

New music from New York, exploring the electronic avenues and avant-garde alleyways. Featured artists include Terry Riley, Yaeji and Tyshawn Sorey.

Following on from this evening's Prom performance, "New York: Sound of a City", Nick Luscombe explores the electronic avenues and avant-garde alleyways that make up modern-day New York.

Tracks tonight will be new music from New York only, featuring: solo artists trying to make their way in the big city; some of the more interesting scenes currently carving out space for themselves, with reference to Queer Percussion Research Group and Women's Raga Massive; and the best of the jazz scene, including composer-drummer Tyshawn Sorey.

Produced by Jack Howson for Reduced Listening.
