Silver Threads album cover

Nonesuch Records released Silver Threads April 29.


  • My album Silver Threads is now out on Nonesuch! Performed by Mellissa Hughes; text by Greg Alan Brownderville, Tarfia Faizullah, Kristin Kelly, Dora Malech, and Zach Savich; mixed by Damian Taylor, mastered by the Lodge. WQXR calls it "stylish, with a youthful energy", and the UK Independent remarks that "at times, the results resemble the electro-soul of James Blake, except that Hughes's measured recitation has a cool emotional distance."
  • Other Silver Threads news: we had a blast at our May 7 release show at (Le) Poisson Rouge; Mellissa will sing a couple selections at the Tribeca New Music Festival on May 17; and we've got a few other future performances in the mix--stay tuned for details!
  • I made a mixtape of "songs" for Q2.
  • Mellissa sang selections from Silver Threads at her recital on Lincoln Center's American Songbook series in March--kudos to Mellissa for the great LC debut!

  • I recently spoke about contemporary electronic music on NPR's Here and Now--check out the story here.
  • As part of the latest Sleeping Giant collaboration, I'm finishing up a work for eighth blackbird. We recently had a great time workshopping our pieces with the ensemble. After that, next up for me is a piece for The Living Earth Show.
  • The String Orchestra of Brooklyn performed my Stabat Mater Dolorosa in a dark church on a snowy night in December. Many thanks to the talented SoB and the brave audience!
