New chamber music recording project with the Thin Edge New Music Collective

IMG_4096Even more good news for early 2013!

I am the proud recipient of a Ontario Arts Council Classical Music recording grant.   The now-successful proposal I submitted was to do a recording of a few of my chamber works with the Thin Edge New Music Collective and various guests for release.  The recording and engineering will be handled by the more-than-capable Jean Martin and the tentative plan is to record at his own studio, The Farm and at Canterbury Music Company.

While the track-list is not yet set, the disc will definitely feature the work I wrote for Thin Edge in 2012, a destination as well as my string quartet senesce from 2009 and my violin duo a timid statement which Thin Edge members Suhashini Arulanandam and Ilana Waniuk have played.  I also expect to create new works for the album.

No word on timelines or anything but I expect that the album will be out within a year or so!
