Hello Over There

We are five composers from five different countries. In response to the global pandemic, we sought to make a record of a creative process which both unifies and allows for the free expression of our respective musical and cultural backgrounds. Each composer's musical contribution is accompanied by field video and audio collected from their city, and the result is an audiovisual "time capsule" which blends our aesthetic sensibilities with how our corners of the world look and sound right now. Our creative process also represents, albeit on a small scale, how people — similar in some ways and dissimilar in others — can mobilize their personal talents in harmony with a shared vision forward.
