The Micro Composition Project
Classical Music Indy has commissioned six different Indianapolis-based composers to create new engaging works to disrupt the genre’s traditional listening experience.
Six composers have been selected to create a new work for the 2020 Micro Composition Project: Gabrielle Cerberville, Rob Funkhouser, Timothy Gondola, Mina Keohane, Eric Salazar, and Nicholas Sokol.
The composers were commissioned to create a one-movement piece for a chamber ensemble of only five minutes or less. Indianapolis-based chamber ensemble Forward Motion will premiere these works at the Music in Bloom Festival, so instrumentation was required for flute, clarinet, violin, cello, and percussion. As the only ensemble of its kind in Indianapolis, Forward Motion are emerging artists pioneering the city’s New Classical culture by bringing audiences innovative performances by living composers.
