Esteemed musician and composer Peter Broderick today shares a true gem: a previously unreleased track from the legendary musical treasure troves of Arthur Russell entitled Give It to the Sky and performed with the French 12-piece group, Ensemble 0.
Facta est deserta is the new single from Shards, the London-based vocal group led by singer and composer Kieran Brunt. Commissioned by Elizabeth Alker for her BBC Radio 3 programme Unclassified, the song was made for the station’s 400th anniversary celebration of Renaissance composer William Byrd.
This autumn, Erased Tapes are set to release Give It to the Sky: Arthur Russell’s Tower of Meaning Expanded by composer and producer Peter Broderick and French 12-piece group Ensemble 0; a complete re-recording of Russell’s epic minimalist orchestral composition originally released in 1983.
Ahead of the release of their new album Rain Before Seven... due this Friday, Penguin Cafe have shared the video for album opener Welcome to London. The song got its name as the world started to open up and people were finally allowed to fly again.
