For a very different radio experience, tune in and have a listen to electroacoustic and computer-based sounds that cutting edge composers have been creating since the mid-1900's with the use of traditional acoustic instruments as well as those newly invented - sounds that are acoustic, electroacoustic, acusmatic, computer processed, purely electronic, field recordings, and more.  From melodic to not even close.  Music that varies from easy on the ears to difficult and indescribable.  Unzip your ears each Monday.
