It was such a pleasure working with the amazing ASEAN (Association of Southeast Asian Nations) Young Artists last week at Thailand International Composition Festival. Now in its 14th year, the festival included musicians from all over the world. I was honored to join this year as a guest composer.
The three ASEAN Young Artists from the Philippines are founding members of Ripieno Ensemble, a newly founded group dedicated to performing contemporary music that has already done some wonderful projects (read more about them here: http://www.interlude.hk/front/modern-academy-focus-ripieno-ensemble/) I’m grateful for all the care they put into the performance and I’m excited to follow the group’s future projects!
