Brass Guitars Music
The Lincoln Shuﬄe
Bryce Dessner is the guitarist for The National and Clogs. Bryce has performed/and or recorded with some of the world’s most creative musicians, including songwriters Antony Hegarty and Sufjan Stevens, Sonic Youth guitarist Lee Ranaldo, and composers Michael Gordon, Philip Glass, and Steve Reich. In addition to touring with The National, Bryce’s upcoming projects include a new commission for the Kronos Quartet and a new work for BAM”s Next Wave Festival in 2009.
Bryce offers up “The Lincoln Shuﬄe,” a series of short compositions inspired by Lincoln and the music of his era, featuring primarily brass instruments. Bryce hopes his work will be the seed of an archive that starts to grow, so we invite you to remix his music or create your own.
