And he’s actually charging $9.11 for it.
Ferraro is charging an eyebrow-raising $9.11 for the 13-minute classically-influenced instrumental piece that features regal sounding horns and earthy woodwind instruments.
The ever-chameleonic US artist told Pitchfork that he chose that specific price “to symbolize the significance of the marathon as part of a larger sociopolitical complex known as The Global War on Terror after 2013.” However, what he is really doing is reducing a catastrophic event to a crass joke intended to make money. Not cool.
This new release follows last year’s similarly classically-influenced Human Story 3 and Burning Prius, a pair of piano concertos.
Ferraro will be touring Europe with Ducktails and Spencer Clark this spring, including a London date on May 12 at The Lexington.
