NPR Music's “Live in the Concert from All Songs Considered” is partnering with the online video channel Pitchfork.tv to present a multimedia concert experience: with NPR Music webcasting and podcasting audio, and Pitchfork.tv offering video, of select concerts. The first concert in this new collaboration, featuring Antony and the Johnsons, is available now at both sites: www.NPR.org/music and www.Pitchfork.tv
The Antony and the Johnsons concert, recorded live from the 6th & I Street Synagogue in Washington, D.C., on February 3, 2009, is streaming now and available as a podcast at NPR Music. While NPR Music recorded the concert, Pitchfork.tv filmed the show and is offering five songs for view on its site. Editors from Pitchfork and All Songs Considered worked together to choose Antony and the Johnsons and present the multimedia experience of the live show in tandem. Look for more shared concerts soon.
NPR Music features content from NPR and 12 NPR Member public radio stations, and original-to-NPR Music features such as live performances, studio sessions, music lists, interviews, reviews and blogs. “Exclusive First Listen” joins NPR Music’s continuously expanding sections dedicated to rock/pop/folk, classical, jazz/blues, world and urban music.
