Ymusic: Beautiful Mechanical

I'm loving these guys.

From NPR
"The New York-based mini-orchestra yMusic champions music by young composers whose work combines the complexity of classical music and the tuneful, rhythmic energy of pop. The ensemble consists of six virtuosos: Hideaki Aomori, clarinet, bass clarinet; CJ Camerieri, trumpet, French horn; Clarice Jensen, cello; Rob Moose, violin; Nadia Sirota, viola; and Alex Sopp, flute, piccolo. Each of these players is often busy playing with orchestras, chamber groups, and cutting-edge pop acts such as Bon Iver, The National, Björk, David Byrne, Grizzly Bear, Antony and the Johnsons and Sufjan Stevens" [...]
These pieces of music were composed by people like Annie Clarke (St. Vincent), Son Lux and Shara Worden (My Brighted Diamond).
