Sam Wu, [alien forests]
“Depending on the spectra of their local stars,
the flora of exoplanets may come in wildly
different colors than our own:
red, purple, blue, or even black.”
Shuying Li , “The Dryad”
“The Dyad was inspired by Hans Christian Andersen’s same-titled fairy tale. It depicts a chestnut tree’s migration from the countryside to the modern city, and focuses on the ideas of nostalgia, desire, modernity, old and new homes, and contrast and struggles related. Schubert’s song “Der Lindenbaum” is featured throughout the piece as a representation of nostalgia and old memories that the dryad has when being migrated to a new place with totally new experiences.”
Byron Au Yong, Mo Sheng 墨声 Ink Sound
“Mò Shēng 墨声 Ink Sound relates the simplicity and density of sound to the amount of ink on a brush. The string quartet plays with a calligraphic impulse, inspired by Pan Gongkai’s Exhibition.”
Xavier Shuang Xu, “Phase Transition”
“An experiment on the order of pitches, dynamics, and timbres.”
Marc Chan, “Playing Schumann”
"Marc holds a doctorate in composition from the Manhattan School of Music and is a member of the New Dramatists Composer-Librettist Workshop and the BMI Lehman Engel Musical Theater Advanced Workshop."
Yan Pang, The Others
“This work moves through a varying spectrum of Chinese and American values including choreography of internal reflection and contemplation enacted through movement to portray external societal dissonance. The dance piece seeks to convey a process of racialization and translation in my birth country, my journey to the U.S., and my new home country.”
Nicholas Tran, Basil and Bean Sprout
“Basil and Bean Sprout is written to closely mirror the migration of phơ from its origins to the United States.”
Risha Shine, Resilience
“I have attempted to portray the happy and the sad, the anger and the numbing heartache. In the end, tonality prevails in a peaceful, possibly triumphant, return to happiness; the kind only resilience can reward.”
Michele Cheng, Voir dire
“This piece is based on real cases, a personal experience as a selected juror for a criminal case, and field research.”
Niki Harlafti, The City Wears Nothing
“This piece was inspired by the distant, echoing city sounds of Boston in the evening stillness, as I experienced them through my fifth floor apartment window, facing a brick highlight.”
Juhi Bansal, Trail of Stars
"This piece plays with elements of time, improvisation and repetition to mirror the meditative serenity of these long-exposure shots, juxtaposed with moments of sharpness for the stars’ brilliant arcs of motion.”
Cheng Jin Koh, Going Home
“The lyrical cinematography and warm colors captured in the painting serve as the greatest impetus for my work, where I hope to create a calm ambience of nature comforting one's desire for a long-awaited reunion”
Yaz Lancaster, Intangible Landscapes
"'Intangible landscapes deals with the growing feelings of ennui and isolation I encounter[ed] living in New York over the past six years, and how perceived landscapes of memory shift, breathe and transform over periods of time."
Intangible Landscapes recording
Ruby Fulton, Deadlock: Concerto for Beatboxer
"'Deadlock' is a concerto custom-made for Baltimore beatboxer Shodekeh, an artist of vocal percussion."
Eldred Stevenson, Seven Sisters
“ELDRED STEVENSON is a composer, musician and teacher based in Bristol, UK. He was originally a self-taught musician and producer, and was involved in countless recording and performance projects between 1990 - 2010, most notably founding economically catastrophic improvisation 'cult' The Orange Show circa 2001."
Michael Lee, “Farewell…”
"‘Farewell…’ for string quartet was written in 2012 for friends during my time living in New York City. It was my last composition written before moving to Los Angeles in 2013, and thus is a kind of adieu to my friends and to the amazing experience I had studying and writing in Manhattan.”
Warren Enström, Notes on Progression
"Notes on progression explores how one gesture may transform into another and how resonance expands beyond its original source and its original container words words words.”
