Eighth Blackbird: Slide

Today we feature a promotional video of Eighth Blackbird performing portions of “Slide”. Showcasing actor/singer Rindle Eckert, and composer Steven Mackey playing electric guitar, “Slide” is anything but just a new music work. Eighth Blackbird percussionists Matt Duvall has built his career as a contemporary chamber musician. In recent years we’ve seen an influx of contemporary chamber groups do exceedingly well. Do you think this genre will continue to offer exciting new performing opportunities or is it just a passing fad? Leave your comments in the the Chattr Section.
