Nico Muhly, "Part II: Material in a Handsome Stack" MP3

photographer Samantha West

With his trilogy of Drones EPs, Nico Muhly—the prolific young composer and past collaborator with Philip Glass, Grizzly Bear and Usher—explores continuous sound combined with three instruments: piano, viola and violin. The second EP, Drones & Viola, showcases piano performed by Bruce Brubaker and viola by Nadia Sirota in an effect Muhly says is "not unlike singing along with one’s vacuum cleaner." Drones & Viola comes out July 23rd, with a pre-release on July 16th via Bedroom Community, the Icelandic modern classical label that Muhly founded with Valgeir Sigurðsson, who produced Drones, and Ben Frost.
