Bing & Ruth (E. Johnston)

No Home of the Mind, is the third record and first on indie label 4AD from ambient-chamber collective Bing & Ruth. Watch a live stream from Monday, Feb. 13, of the band's record release party at The Greene Space at WQXR, hosted by John Schaefer.

The music explores the piano’s percussive qualities alongside running woodwinds, warbling tape delays and splattered upright bass lines, taking so-called “classical” music to new limits. Steered by composer and New School-graduate David Moore, the music follows in the tradition of fellow alumni John Cage and Steve Reich, albeit looking past the more studied repetition of the style’s forerunners toward a meditative form built on feeling.

Watch the ensemble perform this music in full for the first time, via on-demand video below:
