The go-to ensemble for some of music’s biggest names, New York’s yMusic combine virtuosity with energy.
Members of the group have performed and recorded with Björk, Jay Z, Dirty Projectors, Grizzly Bear, Bon Iver, Peter Gabriel, Vampire Weekend and more, creating their own niche at the nexus of indie and classical. yMusic’s playing is intricate, articulate, irreverent and percussive; its performances ambitious and inspired.
Debut LP Beautiful Mechanical includes compositions by Shara Worden (My Brightest Diamond) and Annie Clark (St. Vincent) and was voted #1 classical album of 2011 by Time Out New York.
yMusic ignores boundaries as it celebrates the possibilities of its instruments and ensemble.
Also playing at Salon Perdu Spiegeltent, Parramatta.
“(yMusic) have helped to shape the future of classical music” Fred Child, NPR
