This episode features a selection of my World Fusion Classical music - compositions of mine for classical groups that are influenced by a wide variety of World Music styles. “Suite For An Imaginary Country” is a piece for string orchestra performed in May 2021 in Brattleboro, VT by Juno Orchestra under the direction of Zon Eastes. It is in 3 movements - Dark Matter, Penta Waltz and O. G. Raga. After it was performed Serenity Smith Forchion of Nimble Arts choreographed an aerial dance in the trees to the piece which is included in this episode. The second piece is an excerpt of "Five Gamelans For Brass Quintet," the last movement, called The Masked Dancer Retells An Ancient Tale. It is performed by The Kyodai Brass Quintet. The final piece in this episode is “Thorn Forest Walkabout” for two cellos and dumbek. Jared Shapiro and Stephen Katz play the cellos and I am on the dumbek.
