    Watch: Rhiannon Giddens, Francesco Turrisi Perform NPR Tiny Desk Home Concert
    NPR Music

    Rhiannon Giddens and Francesco Turrisi performed an NPR Music Tiny Desk Home Concert from Turrisi's home in Dublin. The set includes four "old songs," as Giddens calls them—"'cause with these kinds of emotions, the old songs say it best": "Black As Crow," "Carolina Gals," "Last Chance," and a Spiritual. You can watch it below.

    "They're finding comfort in being together, making music together, thinking of their families in both Italy and the United States, and hoping to comfort us all with some down-home tunes," says NPR's Bob Boilen. "And with banjos, fiddles, a bodhrán, and that stunning voice, it sure worked for me!" You can read more at npr.org.

    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.
