KUOW Studio Performance: Beck's "Song Reader"
Pop singer Beck’s latest record isn’t actually recorded at all. It’s a binder full of sheet music. The idea behind it hearkens back to the days before mass-produced recorded music, when people bought popular songs on sheet music and gathered to play the songs together. Local composer Wayne Horvitz loves that idea, so he’s getting musicians from all over Seattle together to play some of the pieces Saturday night. He talks with KUOW’s Dave Beck.
