From New World Radio's Listing:

The Listeners!!!
Alexander Waterman on "Ballad of Accounting"
Matthew Welch on Balinese Gamelan
Two of our most successful shows of fall 2010 were cellist and composer Alex Waterman talking about Robert Ashley and bagpiper and composer Matthew Welch's introduction to Balinese Gamelan. We continue with these two members of a burgeoning New York experimental scene with a continuation of their conversations. Alexander talks about his conceptual piece "Ballad of Accounting" for cello and the BQE and its relation to the Ewan McColl busking classic. Matthew ends his illlustrations of the multiple instrumentations, forms, and uses of Balinese Gamelan in relation to his epic Bhima Swarga project with Ikue Mori.
