Guitarist, composer and producer Nick Zinner (Yeah Yeah Yeahs, 13 million year old ghost) and Chaikin Records proudly present 41 Strings, a song cycle for string orchestra, electric guitars and expanded rhythm section. This four-movement composition was originally commissioned for a large-scale Earth Day event and draws inspiration from and pays tribute to the four seasons. Notable performances over the years include those at Sydney Opera House, London's Royal Festival Hall and NYC's Rockefeller Center. Each performance of the piece features stellar special guests; previous guests have included Lenny Kaye (Patti Smith), Paul Banks (Interpol), Sarah Lipstate (Noveller, Iggy Pop) among many more. The rhythm section features members of Yeah Yeah Yeahs, TV on the Radio and Boredoms. 41 Strings's compositional style is purposefully simple, lyrical and minimal; each of the four season's is treated as its own distinct 'character' to conjure a sentimental link of association, experience and environment.
