NYC chamber music ensemble yMusic, who will be opening for Blake Mills at LPR on Wednesday, October 1, just shared the trailer for their second full-length album, Balance Problems, which is being released by New Amsterdam Records on September 30.
Take a peak at what yMusic (Rob Moose, CJ Camerieri, Clarice Jensen, Alex Sopp, Hideaki Aomori, and Nadia Sirota) has in store on Balance Problems below. The album features compositions by Nico Muhly, Timo Andres and Sufjan Stevens, among others:
And here’s a bit more from the announcement of the new album:
“Balance Problems operates in a different realm than traditional chamber music. The album’s intricate sonic landscape is heavily impacted by genre-defying luminary Ryan Lott, also known as Son Lux, who, after composing the title track to the group’s debut, was brought on as producer and mixing engineer for Balance Problems. With his diverse background in electronic and experimental music, Lott helped push the project to new heights: the limits of the ensemble’s six acoustic instruments are expanded to create a sonic tapestry of enormous depth and subtlety, all while maintaining the integrity of the musicians’ original performances. What results is a sweeping, full-bodied listen that will entice fans of indie rock, baroque pop, and classical music alike.”
