On the next Modern Notebook with Tyler Kline: States of discord: like struggle, disagreement, dispute, and division - is the subject matter of Clarice Assad’s “CLASH.” Composed between 2020 and 2021, the music responds to what was, for many, a turbulent period of health crises, the collapse of the economy, political turmoil, and more.

Then, it’s a work by Andrew Noseworthy for cello and electronics that draws on elements of shoe gaze music. Titled “GomL_V7FinalMix_LessVox_MoreVerb_Dec13_MASTERED_48k24b_FINAL.wav,” it’s music that cloaks quiet acoustic gestures behind a thick, almost-My-Blood-Valentine-esque foreground of bit-crushed cello.

Plus pieces by Liam Taylor-West, Nicolas Lell Benavides, Mary Watkins, Eduardo Costa Roldan, Clara Allison, Kezia Yap, Doug Bielmeier, and others; and performances by violinists Lucia Lin and Shaw Pong Liu, pianist Sarah Chaill, bandoneon soloist Julien Labro with Takacs Quartet, Kukuruz Quartet, violinist Flora Wong, cellist India Gailey, Unheard-of//Ensemble, and more.

That’s Sunday night from 8 to 10 ET on Classical WSMR 89.1 and 103.9. Available the next day at modernnotebook.org.
