All-Stars CD release party for "Field Recordings"The Greene Space (and Q2), NYC
Wednesday, May 13, 2015 - 7:00pm
CD release party for "Field Recordings," the All-Stars newest recording!
Hear recent works by Steve Reich, Christian Marclay, Jóhann Jóhannsson, Anna Clyne, Todd Reynolds, Bang on a Can co-founders David Lang, Julia Wolfe and Michael Gordon, and genre-hopping provocateurs Tyondai Braxton (formerly of Battles), Mira Calix, Nick Zammuto (The Books), Florent Ghys and Bryce Dessner (The National).
Field Recordings asks composers to go into the field of recorded sound itself – to find something old or record something new, and to respond with their own music, in dialogue with what they found. Using archival audio, found sound andvideo, Field Recordings builds a bridge between the seen and the unseen, the present and absent, the present and the past. The music created for Field Recordings is a bridge through time, sensation, and sound – a thrilling ride through time, from New York to Hollywood to Las Vegas, from John Cage to French Canadian folk singing, from beauty treatments to tape loops, vinyl records, and more.
