yMusic’s Beautiful Mechanical
If you missed the Kickstarter for yMusic… the album is getting an official release:
yMusic Beautiful Mechanical (album out Sept. 27, New Amsterdam Records)
Release Show w/ My Brightest Diamond Oct. 14 in NYC, Details TBA
yMusic is a versatile sextet of sought-after, classically-trained musicians who have forged deep relationships with artists throughout the overlapping classical and pop music worlds. Not only do its members regularly collaborate and perform with Bon Iver, Sufjan Stevens, Vampire Weekend and Björk, they are also active recitalists, arrangers, and commissioners and have performed with classical institutions like the New York Philharmonic and the Orchestra of St. Luke’s. In Beautiful Mechanical, yMusic’s artistic mission is fully realized with seven commissioned works by six favored collaborators. The disc features debut concert works from Annie Clark and Shara Worden (who do not perform on the album), alongside new pieces from Son Lux, Judd Greenstein, Gabriel Kahane, and Sarah Kirkland Snider. True to the spirit of this co-active community and to their fluency in varied ventures, yMusic worked together with these various writers to shape a cohesive album. The result is an expertly written and impeccably executed declaration of enormous delight, shining with yMusic’s crystalline character. yMusic is: Rob Moose, violin; Nadia Sirota, viola; Clarice Jensen, cello; Alex Sopp, flute; Hideaki Aomori, clarinet; C.J. Camerieri, trumpet. Learn more HERE.
