New Music with Voices

For this New Sounds, try on some layered voices in music by Julianna Barwick.  A superchoir of many Juliannas combines with warm drones and hypnotic piano to bring to mind Sigur Rós in a glacial cathedral.  Plus, there's also music from Toby Twining's "Eurydice," which began as a score for Sarah Ruhl's play of the same name, and evolved into a many voiced interpretation of the Orpheus myth.  Those works, and much more.
