Penzias and Wilson releases a new single titled “Sonata Agita” on March 31, two years after its split debut with Empty Ensemble.

“Sonata Agita” takes on one of the most difficult modes in Western music: Locrian. Loosely based on the classical sonata form, the song straddles the recent and distant pasts with prepared pianos and electronic dance beats.

A piece of musique concrète, “Black Transits” crafts a three-part work with the urban environmental sounds of Seattle’s public transit system.
