SHOUTOUT!

The live premiere of 12 original works from our joint album with Helix Collective and the Composers Diversity Collective. This will be the live premiere of the pieces by the film, t.v., and game composers of the Composers Diversity Collective, originally created as a record-from-home pandemic era album. 

Featuring music written for Helix Collective by Jina Hyojin An, James A. Goins, Kevin Smithers, George Shaw, Mary Ancheta, Cora Chung, Matthew Wang, Ghiya Rushidat, Sid De La Cruz, Pablo R. Langaine, Tony Morales, and Zong Chiang.

“The music ranges from Morales’ charming fairy-garden piece “Sapphire and Eliana” to the jazzy “Bla Bla Land” by South Korean composer Jina Hyojin An; from the wide-open-spaces “Old West” by Sid De La Cruz to the sweetly romantic “A New Place” by Middle Eastern composer Ghiya Rushidat; from the moody urgency of “Crossed Paths” by Mexico City-born Kevin Smithers to the edgy chamber-music sound of “Le Collapsus” by Taiwanese composer Cora Chung.”
