A SEASON AND A TIME

Last week, we asked our Facebook, Twitter and Instagram followers to share songs that bring them peace of mind. We’ve now collected those into a playlist (with some selections from your friends at Kronos too). We’ll continue to add suggestions as we receive them, so let us know what song brings you peace of mind.

“The Kronos Quartet’s new recording employs ‘space sounds’ recorded by NASA over the years, and these percussive clicks, drones and ghostly screeches are artfully integrated into the string arrangements. Where some composers tend to get doomy and dystopian when faced with such subject matter, Riley is appealingly childlike and positive, and his strident minimalism is complemented by the utopian harmonies of the Volti choir.”
