For my playlist, I opted for soft but powerful voices from the Americas whose music I find transcending, refreshing, imaginative and captivating in various ways. I’ve been charmed and entranced in different moments in time by all of these pieces and to this day they still resonate in my memory, with a timeless essence that makes me revisit them over and over again. – Angélica Negrón
At NewMusicBox we make it a point to feature as much great new music as possible, so we thought it would be fun to start our own mix series, built from some of the new and recent recordings that travel across our desks, land in our inboxes, and hook our ears out in the world.
With music by Angélica Negrón, Cenk Ergün, Drew Baker, David Crowell, and more.
When one thinks of American Mavericks, several names immediately come to mind: John Cage, Lou Harrison, Philip Glass, Steve Reich, John Adams, and a few others. In my series, I tried to focus on artists other than these, some of whom are underplayed, some young and not yet well known and some I believe to be Mavericks in ways that perhaps you don’t expect.
With works by Angélica Negrón, Terry Riley, Phyllis Chen, Tristan Perich, Joan La Barbara, Morton Subotnick, and more.
