This is from Innova’s website:
Beta Collide, directed by Grammy Award-winning flutist Molly Barth (formerly of eighth blackbird) and trumpeter Brian McWhorter (formerly of Meridian Arts Ensemble), has just released its debut album Psst…Psst! with stellar pianist/celestist David Riley, percussionist/sommelier Phillip Patti, and with contributions from THE Thom Yorke and Colin Greenwood of Radiohead. Together they make quirky European and American new music not only palatable but refreshing.
The record features absurdly virtuosic music by Ligeti and Erickson, a long-awaited recording of Silvestrov, lovely soundscapes by Kyr and Vitiello, a Rzewski trifecta, and even a song called Nude just in case you weren’t already stimulated.
