Meetings of Two Tectonic Plates

For this New Sounds, listen to some of the remarkable and unexpected collaboration between concert violinist and improviser Hilary Hahn & the German composer and keyboard player, Hauschka.  They perform for us works for violin and prepared piano, based on their record, "Silfra," which was named for the crack in Iceland between the American and Eurasian continents where the continental plates meet and drift apart about 2cm per year.  Interestingly, these live performances are different from the ones on "Silfra," because all of the pieces are improvised.
