Step Outside

Sunday: 10:00 pm - 12:00 am

Step Outside is a sojourn through strange and beautiful sounds, digital hybrids and musical mutations. Over three decades, Step Outside has become WMNF’s showcase of the Strange and Beautiful! From 20th century composers to early electronic experiments, free jazz, 4th world music, obscure psychedelia, and the rock avant-garde. Featured artists include Sun Ra, Fred Frith, Tom Waits, John Zorn, Amy Denio, Dungen, Faust, Soft Machine, Miles Davis, Karlheinz Stockhausen, Gyorgy Ligeti, Fripp & Eno, and many more…
