Mount Wittenberg Orca and More

A human and a family of whales view each other over a distance; that's the inspiration for "Mount Wittenberg Orca," a song cycle Dave Longstreth of Dirty Projectors wrote for his group and singer Björk. Distance and connectedness are themes in new songs by Antony and the Johnsons, Owen Pallett, and Sufjan Stevens, too. Host David Garland presents "Mount Wittenberg Orca," and other new recordings that expand the possibilities of song.
