We hope to surprise listeners with our soundscape capabilities (including extended techniques) and the full experience of our performances.We were really eager to be a part of the GCG community because of the way they connect artists and help guide a truly collaborative creative process. Working with composers during the composition process is our favorite thing, and we have been so lucky to be involved with this talented pool of individuals. Each piece is really exciting and unique, and we couldn’t be happier with the outcome.

Workshopping with the GCG composers was really fun — it was interesting to see each composer’s personality and writing style come through as we got to know each of them. It gives us more of a frame of reference to dig deeper into each piece and to have more ownership because we were personally involved in the process.
