More information is available at the Before and After website. This station is devoted to the beautiful, interesting music composed before and after the slice of history (middle baroque through romantic) that is the mainstream classical repertory. Medieval, renaissance, early baroque, modern atonal and minimalist classical compositions are included, along with avant garde music that is sometimes hard to assign a specific genre (classical? experimental? electronic? electro-acoustic? jazz? hard-core ambient? industrial? alternative? noise? glitch?) In addition, the playlist incorporates traditional and modern music from non-Western societies.
