    Composer-performer Daniel Wohl, whose album État was released on New Amsterdam and Nonesuch Records in May, has released a video for the album track "Orbit." The generative music video, made by Ben Heim, is driven by sound data extracted from the music, evolving over time with the sonic landscape and can be seen below. Wohl has announced that he will be the special guest of A Winged Victory for the Sullen on the duo's European tour early next year. The fourteen-concert tour begins at De Duif in Amsterdam on February 20 and stops in Germany, Belgium, Ireland, and the UK, including concerts at Elbphilharmonie Hamburg, Round Chapel in London, and Dublin's National Concert Hall. See below for details and tickets or visit nonesuch.com/on-tour.

    État, featuring electro-acoustic pieces written by Wohl, was recorded with members of yMusic and the Calder Quartet and includes guest performances by Poliça's Channy Leaneagh with co-production by Son Lux's Ryan Lott and mmph. "This is a really beautiful record; love the textures kind of underpinning this one," says NPR's Robin Hilton. His colleague Tom Huizenga concurs: "It's beautiful. I think he's really one of the most imaginative electroacoustic composer-musicians working today." As does NPR's Stephen Thompson, who adds: "These pieces really breathe in such a fascinating way. It's a really easy record to just get completely carried away by."

    To pick up a copy of État, head to iTunes, Bandcamp, and the Nonesuch Store, where CD orders include an instant download of the complete album. It can also be heard on Spotify, Apple Music, and other digital service providers.

    Composer and multi-instrumentalist Jeff Parker's Suite for Max Brown is out now via a newly formed partnership between International Anthem and Nonesuch Records. The album, named for and dedicated to Parker's mother, features nine original songs as well as "Gnarciss," an interpretation of Joe Henderson's "Black Narcissus," and John Coltrane's "After the Rain." Parker plays the majority of the instruments on the record. "The veteran guitarist has created an effortlessly detailed album, full of tradition and experimentation that spans generations," says Pitchfork. "It lives at the vanguard of new jazz music."

    Early James premiered the music video for “It Doesn't Matter Now,” a new song off his upcoming debut album, Singing for My Supper, via Billboard. "The subject matter for this song is pretty heavy," says director Tim Hardiman. "I felt there needed to be some aggression on screen but didn't want it to play out like a typical break up. For some reason, Sideshow Bennie, whom I worked with several years ago, popped in my head. I looked him up and learned he was now working with a sidekick, Anna Fiametta. When I read how they met, I thought it was a funny story that would fit the song." You can watch the video here.
