At Home Shelter Recording
Our Shelter Recordings Project at American Composers Alliance
Submitted by ACA on 2020-03-30T16:00:00

As the coronavirus pandemic continues to cancel live performances across the world, the music community suffers a major blow to its livelihood. Freelance performers find themselves suddenly without necessary performance income expected this year.

In response, ACA's initiative to support players sheltering at home will take immediate effect: The Shelter Recordings.

Professional musicians sheltering at home will be invited to select works to record from the ACA catalog. We will work with the musicians to create premiere recordings of the works using equipment they have on hand. These are DIY, not in-studio recordings. 

The recorded repertoire will come from two sources: works from ACA's legacy program, and works by active ACA composers selected in an ongoing call-for scores.

1. Leon Stein - Sonatina for Two Violins (1931) (Eliot Heaton, Ran Cheng)
2. Andrew Ardizzoia - Rocking Song (2018) (Peter Nelson-King)
