Composed music is constantly developing. Whether it concerns new pieces for traditional acoustic instruments, electronic music, or even entirely home-made instruments, composers are always discovering new sounds. But how can you learn to listen to unprecedented sounds?

Pianist Saskia Lankhoorn and composer/singer Brechtje van Dijk a.k.a. Bec Plexus take a look at recent music which inspires them and appeals to their imagination. They discuss music that they were closely involved with as a performer. Including works by Igor C. Silva, Jennifer Walshe, Peter Adriaansz and Petra Strahovnik.
