Mixtape #142


Acclaimed and genre-bending cellist and composer Lori Goldston acquired international renown in the 90’s as the touring cellist for Nirvana and appearance on their MTV Unplugged session. For more than 25 years, she has honed a sound that transcends all styles of music, establishing a legacy as a composer, cellist, improviser, producer, writer and teacher, with credits on records and bands like Earth, David Byrne, Black Cat Ensemble, Mirah, Terry Riley, Laura Viers, Tara Jane O’Neil and The Wedding Present amongst many others, as well as score work for operas, films, theatre, and dance productions. Last month she released a riveting new album, High and Low, tapping into influences ranging from baroque music to Americana and experimental music. We asked Lori to put together a mix of some of the artists and bands that inspire her and we're thrilled to start November with this superb selection of tracks.
