Arbor Composers Collective

< BACK TO PROJECTS

 

The Arbor Composer's Collective is a group founded by my friend and colleague, Derek Worthington. I have played with the group since its inception. The ACC is dedicated to the creation, workshopping, and performance of original experimental music. The group has been an ideal platform for experimentation, allowing members to further develop our individual compositional approaches in an environment with immediate feedback. Since there are no stylistic restrictions the repertoire is quite varied, and in that way explores the sonic and methodological possibilities of the mid-sized ensemble.
