    Watch: Chris Thile Performs Talking Heads' "(Nothing But) Flowers" on "Live From Here"
    Live From Here

    Chris Thile gave a nod to his Nonesuch label mate David Byrne when he and the Live From Here band performed the Talking Heads' tune "(Nothing But) Flowers" on last weekend's episode of the public radio show. They were joined by special guests Maggie Rogers and Sarah Jarosz on backing vocals, members of the band Vulfpeck, and Punch Brothers banjoist Noam Pikelny to put the Live From Here spin on the classic song with additional help from the audience at The Town Hall in New York City—and probably more than a few listeners on the other end of the radio. You can watch it here:

    Another Nonesuch artist, Caetano Veloso, offered his own take on "(Nothing But) Flowers" on his 2004 English-language album, A Foreign Sound.

    And Veloso revisited the song, this time with David Byrne joining him, for their 2012 album together, Live at Carnegie Hall.

    Live From Here returns to The Town Hall this Saturday with special guests St. Vincent, Jon Batiste, Nickel Creek bandmate Sara Watkins, and Pikelny, and again the following Saturday with special guests Gaby Moreno, The Knights, and comedian Jim Breuer. Details and tickets available at livefromhere.org.

    Composer Sarah Kirkland Snider’s Mass for the Endangered, is out now on New Amsterdam and Nonesuch Records. A video for “Alleluia” from the Mass, the third video for the project made by Deborah Johnson / CandyStations, can be seen here. Snider’s Mass, with a libretto by poet/writer Nathaniel Bellows, is a celebration of, and an elegy for, the natural world—animals, plants, insects, the planet itself—an appeal for greater awareness, urgency, and action. Originally commissioned by Trinity Church Wall Street, this recording features the English vocal ensemble Gallicantus conducted by Gabriel Crouch.

    Tristan Perich’s Drift Multiply, for 50 violins and 50-channel 1-bit electronics, will be released November 13, 2020, on New Amsterdam and Nonesuch Records, and is available to preorder now. The piece, Perich’s largest work to date, is conducted by Douglas Perkins. Scored as one hundred individual lines of music, the piece blends violins and speakers into a cascading tapestry of tone, harmony, and noise. The violins perform from sheet music, while the speakers are each connected to custom-built circuit boards programmed to output 1-bit audio, the most basic digital waveforms made of just ones and zeroes.
