I am so excited about this release, the result of a composition workshop in Beijing that I led about five years ago. The week almost killed me (no sleep, jet lag, long days, etc.) and almost feels like a dream at this point. On this recording I am joined by a truly international group of musicians playing the compositions that came from the 20 students in the class. The music, inspired by a Rauschenberg exhibit at the UCCA, is truly unique, evocative, and expressive.
