Nico Muhly 'Drones & Piano' (EP stream)
Published May 23, 2012Though known for his work arrangement work for Will Oldham, Antony and the Johnsons and Grizzly Bear, avant garde musician Nico Muhly is an accomplished composer in his own right. Following last year's collection of violin concertos, Seeing Is Believing, Muhly has now offered up a new EP called Drones & Piano.
Composed by Muhly but performed by pianist Bruce Brubaker and violist Nadia Sirota, the EP fittingly delivers exactly what the title implies. Brubaker alternates between lovely ivory lines and frantic, freeform eighty-eights pounding, while Sirota tends to supply sublimely droning string swells in the background.
