Judd Greenstein

Hear music by living composers, many of them based in New York, for this New Sounds show.  There’s music by Judd Greenstein, founder of the Ecstatic Music Festival, and co-founder of  New Amsterdam Records, and co-artistic director of the NOW Ensemble. Listen to Greenstein’s “Change,” for the NOW Ensemble, which also had these delightful visuals by Joshua Frankel to accompany it, from a few years back. Hear music by composer Andy Akiho, whose primary instrument is the steel pan, from his recent release, “No One to Know One.”  There’s also new music by New York-based Angélica Negrón for Janus, a trio of harp, viola & flute, augmented by electronics. Listen to “Twenty Megatons from Above” by Annie Gosfield, performed by Wicked Knee and recorded at an Ecstatic Music Festival show from April 2015. Plus, music by Stephen Sondheim arranged by Andy Akiho for pianist Anthony de Mare, and more.
