Promette anticipazioni dal suo nuovo album Conversations with the Cinnamon Skeleton nel concerto di questa sera al club newyorkese The Stone David Garland: con lui saranno Sean Lennon, Charlotte Kemp Muhl e il quartetto d'archi Osso. Scrive Lennon: "David Garland has quickly become one of my favorite contemporary composers. Like many great songwriters before him, he pushes the limits of acceptable harmony and dissonance, yet never at the expense of beauty. He is able to take the listener through what might otherwise be quite perplexing musical architecture, and guide them along as if floating effortlessly on a cloud. 'Conversations with the Cinnamon Skeleton' is clearly the result of a lifetime spent investigating the relationship between notes and chords and words. The fact that Garland is not more known is an indication that much of the world has forgotten why it is we make and listen to music in the first place. If it's not possible for popular music to reach the heights of the great classical masters, it seems no one has told David Garland."
