Nettwerk Music Group Signs William Close To Its Label Roster

Bookmark and Share

Nettwerk Music Group is excited to announce the signing of experimental musician and innovator William Close. Having developed over 100 new types of musical instruments, Close is most recognized for the largest stringed instrument in the world – The Earth Harp. "It's an instrument unlike anything Bach or Beethoven could have ever imagined," writes The New York Times (July 2013).

Developed and built by Close, the body of the instrument rests on the stage, while the strings travel over the audience, attaching to the back of the theatre, concert hall and/or festival ground, turning every space into an instrument. Close studied sculpture and sound design at the Art Institute of Chicago. His installations and performances have been experienced around the world – including The Coliseum in Rome, The Kennedy Center and Lincoln Center, The Seattle Space Needle, the temples of Vietnam, Grand Theater of Shanghai International Arts Festival, Brazil's Theatro Municipal in São Paulo, The Dhow Harbour in Qatar, and major US festivals like Lollapalooza, Coachella, Bumbershoot, Burning Man, Lightning In A Bottle, and more.

In the coming months, Close and The Earth Harp Collective – a team of musicians, dancers, aerialists and artists - will appear on The Discovery Channel, as part of a larger feature on their hallmark program The Daily Planet. Also, Close has collaborated with Royal Caribbean International to bring The Earth Harp to the 1300-seated theatre aboard their newest ship, Quantum of The Seas. Following their third-place finish on America's Got Talent, Close and The Earth Harp Collective entered the studio to record two albums. Both releases, Behind The Veil and Holidays, have been re-recorded, featuring new artist collaborations.

Behind The Veil will be released via Nettwerk Records on July 29.

Upcoming Events:
July 25 – Eden, UT @ Summit Series
July 27 – Avalon, South Carolina @ Gratifly Music and Arts Festival
August 22-24 – Singapore @ Singapore National Museum
August 28-31 – Singapore @ Singapore National Museum
