Listen to on-demand streaming audio of the full Ethel Plays JacobTV -- the next in our ongoing series of live New Sounds Live webcasts on Q2. Hear the music of Dutch avant-pop composer Jacob Ter Veldhuis, aka JacobTV, performed by the Ethel string quartet, 24/7 at your convenience, as recorded live on Thursday, March 11, 2010 at Merkin Concert Hall. This concert contains strong language.
This live webcast, the next in a series of ongoing partnerships between New Sounds Live and Q2, is also the launching point for JacobTV on the Radio: an immersive 5-day festival beginning March 17 celebrating the music of JacobTV. Featuring introductions by phantom host JacobTV himself, hours of previously unheard pieces--from extensive European-only and private recordings of recent premieres, including his Piano Concerto No.2, "Sky Falling" (premiered this month in Utrecht, Netherlands), exclusive downloads and previous insightful appearances on WNYC, JacobTV on the Radio promises a profound and far-reaching exploration of TV’s experimental, yet always affecting, sound.
New Sounds Live hosted by John Schaefer from Merkin Concert Hall continues to bring together today's leading ensembles and most forward-thinking musicians, including a previous Q2 webcast in February of the Bang on a Can All-Stars performing multiple world premieres as part of the People's Commissioning Fund Concert. More information on this upcoming concert can be found here. Both concerts will be featured at a later date on WNYC as part of New Sounds.
