Feast of Music's Q2 Mixtape

Casette-400sNow, THIS was fun. Last week, I was invited by WQXR'S online music station, Q2, to put together a set of music for their weekly Mixtapes program. As you can imagine, I veered a bit off the standard classical/new music trajectory, but if you listen to the full set, I think you'll discover that these seemingly disparate pieces of music have more in common than you think.

Playlist below, along with the archived stream. You can also check it out online, where Q2 has all their Mixtapes archived.
