yMusic with Sam Green

Coming off the successful release of their sophomore album Balance Problems in September 2014, yMusic continues their string of fall tour dates this week, accompanying Academy Award-nominated filmmaker Sam Green's "live documentary," The Measure of All Things. Meditating on fate, time, and the outer contours of the human experience, and inspired very loosely by the Guinness Book of World Records to weave together a series of portraits of record-holding people, places, and things—including the tallest man (7’-9”), the oldest living thing (a 5,000 year old Bristlecone Pine in Southern California), and the man struck by lightning the most times (seven!)—the piece will be screened with in-person narration and a live soundtrack.

They perform at Duke Performances on November 15, and bring the show to NYC's The Kitchen on November 21.

New Amsterdam is also celebrating the recent yMusic release with a series of remixes on tracks from the album as part of our 2014 Fundraiser. To learn more and stream the first remix, click here.
