Q2 Music Album of the Week: Brooklyn Youth Chorus' Wildly Energetic 'Black Mountain Songs'
BY DANIEL STEPHEN JOHNSON
"The short-lived, legendary Black Mountain College was a bold educational experiment and the epicenter of a mid-century explosion of creativity in American arts. It was a ground for cross-pollination between avant-gardists in every medium. On its campus, the collaborations of John Cage, Merce Cunningham, Robert Raushenberg, Charles Olson, David Tudor and others helped cultivate a new energy that would transform 20th-Century art."
