Clair de lune: piano & dance I Warner

Published on Mar 23, 2018
"To create – to be creative – is to draw a door on the wall, and then open the door. 'Clair de lune' opens this door wide to transport us to a time where time doesn’t pass. That’s why we become children again when we listen to this music. Artists exploring ideas together become like childhood friends. Alexandre simply closed his eyes and we found each other, on the other side of the door." -Yoann Bourgeois

Dermot Kennedy: NPR Music Tiny Desk Concert

Published on Aug 31, 2018
Aug. 24, 2018 | Stephen Thompson -- Dermot Kennedy took this assignment seriously. The Dublin singer-songwriter wasn't content with merely re-creating his songs as they sound in the studio, or stripping lavish productions down to simple acoustic arrangements. So he got himself a gospel choir. More specifically, Kennedy and his band flew in from Ireland a day ahead of time to meet and rehearse with members of Washington, D.C.'s Howard Gospel Choir. Every arrangement was painstakingly plotted ahead of time, so that every note would be perfect.

George Li: NPR Music Tiny Desk Concert

Published on Sep 7, 2018
Aug. 31, 2018 | Tom Huizenga -- When George Li, the 23-year-old American pianist, revealed his Tiny Desk setlist, one thought came to mind: How will these powerhouse showstoppers sound on an upright piano?

Congo to the Mississippi | Playing For Change

Published on Sep 7, 2018
This song was co-written by Mermans Mosengo and my brother, Greg Johnson, a few years ago while we were on tour with the PFC Band. The simple message and anthemic chorus made me really excited to record it as a PFC Song Around The World. We started under the hot African sun in the village of Lukala in the Congo and we added musicians wherever we traveled for the past few years until we finally added the final piece with Grandpa Elliott playing the harmonica solo in New Orleans. Someday we’ll all be free, until then, music is our ammunition.

Nick Morrish Rarity - the traces that remain I LSO

Published on Sep 3, 2018
Performed live at LSO St. Luke's, Saturday 14th July 2018
"A lot of my recent work has been about sounds as an expression of time. I am particularly interested in how objects can serve as a bridge across temporal domains - a means of communicating with the past, experiencing the present and preparing for the future. When writing 'the traces that remain', I was interested in how the gramophone and shellac discs can be experienced in this way. The piece is a kind of montage - mosaic of memories, in which the sounds of raw electricity, industry and organic bodies are overlaid and recombined within an ambient, harmonic framework."
