NOWS from David Rosenboom is a captivating expression of the radical challenges brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic. The music examines the notion of "co-presence," or togetherness, when experienced in isolation. This seemingly self-contradictory concept became an everyday occurrence as in-person gatherings became video conferences. Rosenboom spent this time passing fragmented musical ideas back and forth with performer-composer Sarah Belle Reid. In this organic way, a collection of "sound correspondences" accumulated between the two artists, made with instruments ranging from strings and horns to modular synthesizers, analog signal processors, urban and desert soundscapes, and much more. The resulting album, NOWS, is a post-genre masterpiece that speaks to our unique moment in history.
