About this project
"yMusic - a scruffy-ish band of young musicians of illustrious artistry but little individual celebrity. Their contributions are well-known—these guys and girls have toured and recorded with the likes of the Arcade Fire, Spoon, Vampire Weekend, Jonsi and Grizzly Bear. Some graduated from Juilliard, others have played Carnegie Hall. You hear them on your favorite albums and see them at the most anticipated shows, only you don’t know who they are. Maybe you never thought to ask. After all, don’t they just hit a button for violins these days?" -- the L magazine
yMusic is a versatile sextet of Classically-trained musicians who love performing good, new music in whatever genre we can find it.
We've just finished recording an album (our first!) of some amazing new pieces by a bunch of wonderful composers and songwriters, including Ryan Lott (Son Lux), Judd Greenstein, Annie Clark (St. Vincent), Gabriel Kahane, Sarah Snider, and Shara Worden (My Brightest Diamond).
All of the pieces were written for us and extensively workshopped. We are really proud of these performances and super into the music and we can't wait to bring it to you! We're totally done recording this thing, but still need a bit more money to turn it from a jumbled pile of WAV files into a sleek, awesome album that looks and sounds great. We'll release it in September on New Amsterdam Records.
Your money will be used to pay the fab folks who are mixing the record, mastering the record, and making it look bea-U-tiful. Also, physically pressing the thing.
So please send us some cash! You were going to buy the record anyway, it's chamber music (your favorite). Oh, and look for our upcoming release on Asthmatic Kitty with Shara Worden (my Brightest Diamond). More fun video time!
yMusic is Rob Moose, violin and guitars and things; Nadia Sirota, viola; Clarice Jensen, cello; Alex Sopp, flutes; CJ Camerieri, trumpet and horn and keyboards; Hideaki Aomori, clarinets.
We're here to play good music really, really well.
