I keep looking at the international range of Q2 Music. And we used that to put together 24 hours of Latvian contemporary classical music.
It got a lot of attention in Latvia as well as here. We wanted to give them a chance to be heard and to find a new audience.
And that took two or three months of build-out. Well, it was really years just separated by years. At some point, with so much beautiful contemporary classical music out there, it became clear that we had to focus on just that. I mean we have enough diversity now in music composed in the last 20 years. We still have one personality-driven show… AA: But outside of that, you want to meet the expectations about the experience… TC: It helps differentiate the stream from Pandora or Spotify where it really is just a stream of music.
And we wanted to make these audio portraits feel like a musical experience.

Because you supported our Season One Kickstarterwe were able to bring to life our first five hour-long, fully sound-designed episodes. We couldn't have done it without your help.
One of the best things I've heard in a long time. And so when people do it well, I just feel like you gotta give them props.

You'll help cover host and producers' salaries, modest production and promotions needs, and help propel us into another season featuring Living legend Meredith Monk is a composer, vocalist, dancer,choreographer and filmmaker.
While all of these descriptors are technically on point, none quite gets to the bones of who she is as an artist. Meredith seamlessly blends these media into arresting performance pieces that feel like rites from another dimension.
Through her year career, she has maintained her bright, singular perspective, crafting dozens of surprising, whimsical, profound theatrical works.A Conversation with Nico Muhly
Preview a few minutes from our episode on Meredith Monk: An expert technician, insatiable collaborator and thoroughly joyful musician, Nico Muhly writes for a vivid community of musicians around the world, crafting pieces of all sizes and shapes. An exacting Finnish manipulator of electronic and acoustic sounds, Kaija Saariaho was in the first wave of composers at IRCAM in Paris, working on the bleeding edge of interactive and concrete electronics. Whether writing on the grand scale of an opera or intimate scale of a solo work, Kaija weaves detailed tapestries of sound, honing and re-defining the boundaries of acoustic environments with unexpected textures and color.
Ingram superimposes seemingly remembered and misremembered strains with introspective, often electronic landscapes to create music that evokes, nudges and flexes. Anna Thorvaldsdottir sculpts timbre into large-scale, powerful works.
