Description: Carter's enigmatic eight-minute piece of 2008 is for unpitched instruments; Cohen's is gamelan-inspired, Child (2000) is high-spiritedly clangorous and Lerdahl (2007) was inspired by his experience at the 1964 New York World's Fair hearing West African drumming. All live recordings from 2000 and 2008-09. New England Conservatory Percussion Ensemble; Frank Epstein.
