Today – May 15, William Parker releases Trencadís, exclusively on bandcamp. This 10-track album is an advance selection from his forthcoming 10 CD/Album Box Set which is due in late summer. The box set, entitled The Music of William Parker / Migration of Silence Into and Out of The Tone World (Volumes 1–10), will present 10 all new, discrete yet interrelated, albums created at Park West Studios in Brooklyn throughout the last 16 months.The final session took place in February not long before the lockdown began. Featuring different performers on each album – ranging from solo expressions to trios to mid-size ensembles (quintet to nonet) to string quartet – the musicians include both some of Parker’s long-time associates, and vital young voices new to the creative music scene here in NYC. The focus of the total work is on William Parker as composer–producer. His own distinguished voice on a variety of instruments also appears on a good portion of the total work.
