    This is a book of 25 compositions called Streets of Philadelphia. These pieces, all inspired by and named after streets in Philadelphia, were written to be played by any instrumentation. They're all new compositions and none of them have been recorded, so think of this as my new album, it's just on paper. The book was designed and printed on Risograph by Erik Ruin, a Philadelphia-based visual artist and leader of the audiovisual band, Ominous Cloud. The Streets of Philadelphia book is limited to 100 copies.

about

Following the 2019 release of the first volume of his Streets of Philadelphia songbook — which includes 25 compositions named after streets in the composer’s hometown — Nick Millevoi began documenting these compositions as performed by various ensembles. The first of these recordings, also entitled Streets of Philadelphia, serves as a digital companion release to the physical songbook.

The sounds of Streets of Philadelphia reach far and wide on this debut recording. Conceptually inspired by the City of Brotherly Love and sonically inspired by the AACM, Louis Andriessen, Captain Beefheart, and John Zorn, this recording features a unique instrumentation of Veronica MJ on viola, Tom Kraines on cello, Dan Blacksberg on trombone, Anthony DiBartolo on marimba and percussion, and Millevoi on guitar. Documenting ten of the songbook’s compositions, the ensemble performs in various iterations from solo cello and marimba pieces, to viola/trombone and trombone/guitar duets, to a string trio, and three full ensemble recordings.
