    Watch: Sam Gendel Joins Ethan Gruska for "The Late Show with Stephen Colbert"'s "Play at Home"

    Sam Gendel joined singer, songwriter, and producer Ethan Gruska for a performance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert's online series Play At Home, pictured above with guitarist Ryan Hommel. The performance, which debuted today, was filmed at Sound City Studios back in February, shortly before the release of Gendel's Nonesuch debut album, Satin Doll. You can watch it here:

    On Satin Doll, a futuristic homage to historical jazz, three musicians—Gendel on saxophone and other things, Gabe Noel on electric bass, and Philippe Melanson on electronic percussion—engage in simultaneous synchronized sonic construction/deconstruction of well-known jazz standards, including Miles Davis's "Freddie Freeloader," Charles Mingus's "Goodbye Pork Pie Hat," and Duke Ellington's "Satin Doll." "A woozy, blissfully twisted album," says the Los Angeles Times.

    To pick up a copy of Satin Doll head to your local record store's website, the Nonesuch Store, iTunes, and Amazon, and listen at Spotify, Apple Music, and Bandcamp.

    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.
