From

Listen to portions of New Sounds Live 2016, recorded live at Brookfield Place, with music from Sarah Neufeld & Colin Stetson (of Arcade Fire), Vernon Reid & Laraaji, and The Crossing Choir.

Hear excerpts from a performance by violinist Sarah Neufeld with special guest, Colin Stetson. Both have played with Arcade Fire, and they have a duo record together. The two musicians can generate tons of sound live, with, she with cross-bowing effects and vocals and Stetson with extended techniques.  All with the ambience of dawn chorus of birds, in a sound installation by Pete Wyer. Then listen to excerpts from long-form improvisations by masterful guitarist, composer, and improviser Vernon Reid, who is also the founder and main songwriter of the band Living Colour, joins forces with the zither's celestial sounds, as performed by the multi-instrumentalist Laaraji, from within the same Pete M. Wyer sound installation.

Plus, listen to a cantorial work by the the late Sir John Tavener-“Svyati,” where cello sings and chorus responds, featuring cellist Thomas Mesa, and The Crossing choir, conducted by Donald Nally.
