Unheard-of Project

    Contemporary music. Living composers. Live performers.


    We are finally making an album! Unheard-of is bringing together some of our favorite composers from across the country to present a stylistic mosaic of contemporary sound.

     New York, NY, United States
    This is a Fiscally-Sponsored Project

    Fiscally Sponsored by Fractured Atlas

    For three seasons, Unheard-of has toured the United States premiering over 20 works written for us. Our goal is to support today’s composers and to inspire a new vision of contemporary music for students, musicians, and audiences across the United States. This season, Unheard-of//Dialogues, our season theme, is the perfect opportunity to develop an album that highlights the unique and varied voices of the composers with whom we collaborate.

    What are we creating?

    The album Unheard-of//Dialogues will feature an incredibly eclectic mix brand new works. Here is a list of our collaborating composers below:

    Nickitas Demos
    Reiko Füting
    Nathan Hudson
    Jesse Jones*
    Michael Lanci
    Erin Rogers
    Margaret Schedel
    Christopher Stark*

    *These works are being written for the album and will be heard exclusively on the album as well as our album release during the 2018-19 season.

    What are the contributions going towards?

    • High quality album recording, mixing, and mastering costs
    • Production of CDs and distribution 
    • Advertising and spreading the word

    Why is this different from every other album coming out?

    We've seen many composer albums come out recently focusing on specific composers, ideas, or schools of composition. We want to create something that brings together so many different voices and styles in one place. We chose this based off of our touring experiences. Every city, university, and institution we visit has different tastes, backgrounds, and perspectives on our art form. We have the chance to present them with something they might know as well as many other sounds that might be unheard-of. It is that mosaic that strengthens the art that we present.
