Anthracite Fields


Thanks to the Composer Weekly feature on spotify, I've been listening to music by Julia Wolfe this past week. There have been a few highlights, such as Dark Full Ride, "Into the Clouds", and Steel Hammer (especially "The States"). Lastly I've been listening to Anthracite Fields, the work which won her a Pulitzer in 2015. Of that, I want to especially single out Anthracite Fields: II. Breaker Boys as catching my attention.

That playlist also ends with a documentary about the making of Anthracite Fields. Interesting stuff, but those process details often are.
