      This week we explore modern music performed on recycled materials. From Harry Partch’s “Quadrangularis Reversum,” to Dean Drummonds’ “Zoomoozophone,” many recent composers have forsaken traditional instruments in favor of their own invented apparatuses. Enjoy an hour of new and unique sounds, reiterating the proverb that one man’s trash is indeed another man’s treasure.
