Globe, Travel, Homeland

Sang-Hie Lee, Martha Thomas

With its vast tonal range and its ability to simultaneously supply chords and melodies, the piano is a true musical powerhouse. So what happens if you compose and play music for two of these behemoths? Pianists Sang-Hie Lee and Martha Thomas answer this question on their aptly-titled new album GLOBE, TRAVEL, HOMELAND.

CHAOS + CONTEMPLATION

DRAX

Having commissioned a diverse range of composers in terms of style, ethnicity and gender, DRAX ambitiously attempts to scrutinize and reflect upon current social issues on CHAOS + CONTEMPLATION. Political turmoil, mass hysteria, and the impact of ubiquitous technology are among the motifs presented, and the resulting music is energetic, unapologetic, and raw.

THE QUARANTINE AT THE CORE OF OUR HEARTS

Chris Chafe

At a time when government regulations prohibited concerts and rehearsals, six international electroacoustic composition aficionados connected internationally to harness the powers of modern technology. The result is THE QUARANTINE AT THE CORE OF OUR HEARTS, an hour-long cerebral meditation on forced isolation, and its eventual overcoming.
