Sound of Plaid logoThe Sound Of Plaid episode 2014.07.21:  Experimental Unplugged

Before electronics made it easy, musicians had to get weird the hard way.  In this episode we explore unusual and influential music that pushed the boundaries of composition and instrumentation.  From prepared piano to sound sculpture, from Moondog to Weddell seals, these are the strange sounds of an analog world.
