ACF Roundtable: The Artists of Swell
March 12, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm CST
Twenty-six artists collaborate to bring you a live, online song cycle called Swell, weaving together ten original, new music compositions by ten composers drawing from their personal histories as immigrants and children of immigrants. Hailing from Mexico, India, Israel, Japan, Trinidad, the Philippines, Russia, and Taiwan, the composers’ unique, surprising, and deeply human stories are expressed through voice, piano, cello, and violin.
On Friday, March 12th at noon Central, ACF invites Melisa Tien, the creator of the Swell project, and composers Justine F. Chen, Or Matias, and Izzi Ramkissoon for a conversation about the project, the stories, and the music, and what it is like creating a collaborative virtual event like this in the time of Covid, moderated by ACF Director of Community and Belonging, Dameun Strange.
