I stumbled across the above video and couldn’t help but want to explore if this was coming from a piece much larger than what was presented. Here and Heaven (Live) ~ Sony 2011 (c) was a small piece of “The Goat Rodeo Sessions” presented by @Google Talks–“The @Google Talks program brings authors, musicians, innovators, and speakers of all stripes to Google for talks centering on their recently published books and capturing the popular and intellectual zeitgeist of the day.”
Ok, so “The Goat Rodeo Sessions” is an ambitious and groundbreaking project that brings together four string virtuosos: world-renowned cellist Yo-Yo Ma, fiddler Stuart Duncan, bassist Edgar Meyer and mandolinist Chris Thile… The music, including two tracks with female vocalist Aoife O’Donovan, crosses several different genres.
While visiting Google New York they performed a few selections from their new record. After the performance the group chats with Googler Lauren Carpenter about music and technology. Watch that video below:
