      Richard Reed Parry (Arcade Fire, Bell Orchestre) and Son Lux (aka Ryan Lott) are joined by yMusic, a “stunning sextet” (WQXR) of players who return to the Ecstatic Music Festival following last year’s collaboration with Shara Worden and Sarah Kirkland Snider.

      Parry, well-known for his work as part of the Grammy Award-winning Arcade Fire and the chamber collective Bell Orchestre, here takes on the role of composer, presenting a series of works for yMusic and its members utilizing the organic processes of the human body — heartbeats and breathing — to articulate the works’ progress.

      Son Lux will likewise have his yMusic compositions (from his debut album, Beautiful Mechanical) performed, and will also present new arrangements from his NPR-sponsored album We Are Rising ("shamefully good," Seattle Post-Intelligencer), which used yMusic as source material for its electronic compositions.

      Parry and Lott will also each write new works that incorporate each other into the process, as vocalists, instrumentalists, or even as providers of source material for the new compositions.
