Today’s Song of the Day is from Sufjan Stevens album The Age of Adz: I Walked.
Sufjan Stevens Collaboration
It must be something in the air what with Bjork’s cosmic calling on Biophilia and now Sufjan Stevens creation of a song-cycle loosely based on the planets. Sufjan will be collaborating with old friends Bryce Dessner and Nico Muhly and they will be performing their work in just a few select venues:
accompanied by a trombone choir, string quartet, and drums/percussion/drum machine (played by the indefatigable James McAlister). Selections from the song-cycle will be “live workshopped” at Music Now festival in Cincinnati on March 30. Official performances are scheduled in Eindhoven, Amsterdam, London, and Sydney. Performances in Europe will be preceded by short string quartet works by each collaborator, including two selections from Sufjan’s Run Rabbit Run project.
No other performances for this project have been scheduled and all dates are sold out except Amsterdam, April 8th.
