Social justice music of today, in a powerful, brutal and heartfelt electro-chamber package. Audiences are left in tears, full of hope, and enthralled by the experience. Brand new music for our times. A heart-grabbing and sometimes heart-pounding collection of six compositions on social injustices that affect our modern landscape and all people living on this planet.
The tracks combine chamber instrumentation, such as violin, cello, flute, clarinet, piano, and marimba, with deep-set emotions and prepared electronics that add to the story. These compositions offer a different perspective on important issues such as human rights, war, climate change and our personal safety.
