June is upon us, and with a new month comes a very special batch of tunes picked by one of our favourite bands, Piano Interrupted. The London based duo-turned-quartet enticed us with their lush cinematic soundscapes blending beguilingly classical arrangements and electronics. They spontaneously brought an interesting twist to our mixtape by presenting the tracks in a chronological order, from the oldest to the most recent. So strap yourself in for a journey through time and music.
There are good reasons to be jealous of those who will be in the Big Apple on November 16th! We know that Bang on a Can and Alarm Will Sound love their city very much and most of their new stuff is premiered there. This time Jonny Greenwood impressed Reich with his guitar skills when performing ‘Electric Counterpoint’ in the Sacrum Profanum Festival in Krakow in Autumn 2011. Reich, after much reflection and research, composed ‘Radio Rewrite’ – a piece inspired by Radiohead‘s ‘Everything in its right place’ and ‘Jigsaw Falling into Place’. The piece will be performed by Alarm Will Sound in New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art and it will also be streamed via Q2 Music at 7pm Eastern Time. Below is a taste of what’s coming.
