Todd Reynolds is one of the founding fathers of the hybrid musician movement. Creating acoustic-electronica in real-time with only his 17th-century violin and a 21st-century laptop onstage, his sound mixes borrowed and home-brewed, avant and pop, jazz and classical. “A daredevil musician” (The New Yorker) his evolution is marked by long-time associations with Steve Reich, Meredith Monk, Bang on a Can, and ETHEL, the string quartet he co-founded in 1999.
Now, comes his first solo album, Outerborough, a 2 CD set that reveals him as both a composer and as one of the most sought-after interpreters of contemporary music.
“The first reaction to these CDs - a full-bodied representation of Todd’s musical world – is that of breadth, of porousness, the genre-crossing dream realized. Raga, jazz and blues, electronica, minimalism, fiddling traditions, Kreisler, rock and roll –intermingling and dialoguing in all the ways we had always hoped for.” — composer, Evan Ziporyn
