Synchronization of Metronomes

From the YouTube description:
Five metronomes are set to 176 bpm and placed on a Foam Core board. When empty cans are placed underneath, the board is free to move from side to side and the metronomes are able to influence each other into synchronization. When the cans are removed the metronomes are no longer physically coupled and some of them begin to fall out of step.

Mutations - Vijay Iyer (2014)

This is easily the most cerebral album I have heard all year, I wouldn’t be surprised if it ends up in my top ten.  These compositions are mind blowing.

  • Vijay Iyer - Piano, Electronics
  • Miranda Cuckson - Violin
  • Michi Wiancko - Violin
  • Kyle Armbrust - Viola
  • Kivie Cahn-Lipman - Cello

I’m still unpacking this record.  Vijay Iyer is one of the most astounding musical minds today,

Beautiful and Bizarre. Lots of drones and slippery smoky notes.

Tomorrow at LPR: the trailblazing Dutch harpist Gwyneth Wentink presents a hybrid of styles in a multidisciplinary program with compositions all written by Dutch composers.

Hey New York! 
Go see her play, she’s amazing. I would go if I were there. Why am I not there?
Dammit.
