From the New Sounds Live Concert Series, listen to music from the Ecstatic Music Festival, recorded live last month at Merkin Hall. Hear selections from “Work Songs” by Timo Andres for three voices, two guitars, keyboard, accordion, and piano. Timo challenged himself to write vocal music and the resulting Work Songs are striking. The texts revolve around labor; balancing songs about feelings of discouragement and exhaustion with songs meant to provide comfort to workers.
