Composer Arun Luthra integrated community-sourced sounds gathered from across New York City to create five new pieces. Hear how the sounds of the city shape the music of the city and what both can reveal about the sonic culture of all five boroughs.
There is a mysterious sound tucked in to the middle of New York's Times Square. Among the honking horns, shuffling tourists, and screeching bus tires, it resonates below the surface. Watch our film to find out about that, and other audible surprises, New York has to offer.
This series explores the musical sounds of New York City. In what ways can poetry and the voices of New Yorkers illuminate the sonic culture? Host Fred Child talks with series poet Ariel Francisco about his five new works- one for each borough of New York.
Music is often celebrated through its performers and composers, but what about the artists who craft the instruments themselves? Luthier Sam Zygmuntowicz is based in New York City and that helps him feel a great sense of responsibility to be an usher for his clients' successes.
