For Mixtapes, we ask today's leading musicians, authors, filmmakers and artists to assemble an hour of new-music that they find particularly compelling or that exemplifies the shifting boundaries of today's musical climate. Today's mixtape comes courtesy of electroacoustic violinist, composer and innovator Todd Reynolds.

"Cat-skinning. 13 Ways. I gave up on defining 'classical music' long ago, yet there is something about a classical aesthetic that one can just sense in an artist. Of course what that thing actually 'is' - well I've long since given up trying to qualify that as well. Represented here are artists, some of whom are our most venerable, who inspire in a particular way with their performance and composition intertwined and inseparable in their work, each with a deeply personal sound and expression." -Todd Reynolds
