Pianist Vijay Iyer keeps making fascinating, innovative music and he's got the approval of the mysterious MacArthur Foundation to prove it. With his recent signing to the famed ECM Records, Iyer is poised to release Mutations, his nine-part composition highlighting strings, on March 4th. The release features violinists Miranda Cuckson and Michi Wiancko, viola player Kyle Armbrust, and violoncello player Kivie Cah-Lipman. More information about the album and a streaming track is available at the Mutations site at ECM. In the meantime, watch the EPK video after the jump.
