On Wednesday, Feb. 6, Q2 Music and New Sounds Live presented a live audio webcast of composer Sarah Kirkland Snider's new song cycle, featuring vocal performances by DM Stith, Shara Worden and Padma Newsome, live from the 2013 Ecstatic Music Festival. Hosted by WNYC's John Schaefer, the evening also included performances by instrumental indie favorites Clogs and Orchestra for the Next Century.
Snider's 13-part song-cycle Unremembered is set to the text of poet Nathaniel Bellows and addresses issues of memory, childhood and innocence. The Orchestra for the Next Century performs the cycle and also presents new music and arrangements by Stith, Worden and Newsome.
Q2 Music is the digital venue for the Ecstatic Music Festival 2013 and will be the center for on-demand artist interviews and concert audio.
