1. Project of the Day—Do you like prog rock? What about the band Yes? Probably if you answered yes to either of those questions, and especially if you answered “yes” to Yes (hahahahaha.) you’ll be interested in this project, which features that band’s own Jon Anderson in collaboration with violin virtuoso Jean-Luc Ponty. They, as you can tell by the picture above, are recording an album.

  3. There’s a pretty good chance that you are aware that “LP”—which is another way to describe a full album of music—stands for Long Player. Looking at today’s Project of the Day, though, makes us think we should maybe reconsider the definition of that term. Longplayer for Voices is continuing through its 1000 year long runtime, now transitioning to a 1000 minute piece for voices. Though a key part of Longplayer is how it adapts to changes in technology over time, this section of the piece will be entirely dependent on the good old fashioned human voice.

  4. Project of the Day—Kronos Quartet founder David Harrington is a pretty notable guy, and the David Harrington Research and Development Fund is just another iteration of some of the amazing music he’s brought into the world, both directly and indirectly.
The idea is that the fund helps “fully realize projects that might not otherwise be possible. When it is your mission to create and perform groundbreaking work, sometimes you need to act quickly to make projects happen now, rather than lose an opportunity.” In the last eight years alone, the fund has commissioned nearly 50 new works — this project will focus on four of them.
