Fellows at 30: The NYFA Collection, Vol. Two
The NYFA Collection: Volume Two will be released on Friday, November 13 and celebrates the 30th Anniversary of NYFA’s Artists’ Fellowship Program
The follow-up to 2010’s critically acclaimed NYFA Collection, The NYFA Collection: Volume Two collects works by the 2013 Music and Sound Fellows and presents a staggeringly broad swath of sonic territory: Fellini-esque circus music, a meditation on the exile of immigration status, guitar stabs and accordion solos, abstract jazz and new music piano, pop references, odes to molars and a bad storm, are just some of the paths explored by this diverse group of artists.
The NYFA Collection: Volume Two continues the archiving and dissemination of the New York music collection, which began with The NYFA Collection: 25 Years of New York New Music—a collection DownBeat called a, “stunning document of historic culture.” Volume Two celebrates the 30th Anniversary of NYFA’s Artists’ Fellowship Program by releasing ten tracks created/composed by the most recent class of Music and Sound Fellows. The recording has been curated by Cristian Amigo (composer-in-residence, INTAR Theater) and innova’s Philip Blackburn from work submitted by the composers themselves.
The CD will be available for purchase from this Friday, November 13, 2015 here and on our website.
NYFA will be celebrating the launch of The NYFA Collection: Volume Two with an event on Friday December 11, 2015 at 6 PM.
The collection includes works by the following NYFA Fellows in Music/Sound ‘13:
