Kaki King
From

Hear collaborative works of all kinds for this New Sounds, from guitar and string quartet to chamber ensemble; from piano duet to accordion trio music. 

Listen to a work, "Trying to Speak," by New York guitarist and composer Kaki King, in collaboration with the string quartet ETHEL, from King's multimedia masterpiece “The Neck is a Bridge to the Body.” When she performs the work live, images are projected onto the body of her custom guitar, while she works her finger-style virtuosic magic.  

Then, hear shimmering music from New York composer Chris Cerrone, in collaboration with the Chicago-based ensemble, Eighth Blackbird. From their recent record, "Hand Eye," Cerrone's work, "South Catalina" piano, clarinet, and percussion provide stately chords augmented by a flurry of violin, cello, & flute. Also, listen to a 20-fingered collaboration, ZOFO, performing music by Terry Riley and the three accordions of the Motion Trio playing music by the late Polish composer, Wojciech Kilar.

There's also collaborative music featuring the Berlin Guitar Ensemble and the Argentine-born, now Berlin-based audio artist and producer, Andrés Jankowski. A.K.A. 1605munro, and more.
