Owen Pallett: Song for Five & Six

Marvin Gaye on Earth Day, a mix of yacht disco hits, DJ Tim Sweeney's #PrivateJam and more in our week of music

This week Montreal-based musician Owen Pallett released “Song for Five & Six” from In Conflict, his fourth full-length studio album (which features Brian Eno) out 13 May on Domino Records. The accomplished violinist and Oscar-nominated composer (for Best Original Soundtrack for Spike Jonze’s “Her”) has amplified the song’s beautiful whirl of sound with a complementary performance dance piece choreographed by Robert Binet of the National Ballet of Canada, that builds to an almost kaleidoscopic effect with the group of dancers pirouetting before a mirror in a room cloaked in black plastic which appears to breathe as they move.
