Make Music New York: 350 Musicians Play "100+ BPM"

Tag(s): WWOZ Latest

Each year at the summer soltice, the Make Music New York Festival happens, with some 1300 performances over all five boroughs. This year for one of those performances, NPR Music commissioned a new piece by Sunny Jain of Red Baraat called "100+ BPM". Then they invited any musician who so desired the chance to learn "100+ BPM" and come play alongside professionals, joining in the song's world premiere on the steps of the Brooklyn Public Library. According to NPR Music's Anastasia Tsioulcas: "With a new piece by Sunny Jain of Red Baraat, the beat and the heart were there already, but the spirit burst to life when all those musicians came out to play". The NPR Field Recording below does a fine job capturing that spirit.
