Premiere of Illinois String Academy Composers’ “Joyous Hippopotamus”

On November 22, 2019, Sisters Akousmatica‘s Moonah Community Radio Festival broadcast a collaborative work by the composition students I teach at Illinois String Academy from Moonah, Tasmania, Australia. I’m very proud of the students’ teamwork during the recording, imagining, and realizing “Joyous Hippopotamus.” Take a listen at 41:41 in this broadcast recording.

I highly recommend exploring the entire festival’s recordings and the works they commissioned for it. I particularly enjoyed how often they engaged with people at Moonah Arts Centre with so many warm, interesting conversations.
