When we began as a Trio back in 2010, we looked forward to exploring the rich collection of 20th Century French repertoire, yet we had a strong desire to expand the genre through the performance and promotion of new music composed expressly for our ensemble. We are so grateful to all of the amazing composers we have met along the way; for their generosity, for sharing their artistic visions, and for creating such compelling music. We would particularly like to thank William Bradbury, Jenni Brandon, Aleksander Sternfeld-Dunn, and M. Shawn Hundley for the contributions to Found Objects: New Music for Reed Trio, our debut recording. Each piece showcases the composer's distinct voice and unique approach to the genre, offering explorations and contrasts of time and space, rhythmic vitality and stasis, as well as a vibrant and broad palette of colors, textures, and sonorities. Special thanks fo Dirk Sobotka, producer and recording engineer, and to Jason Hastings, for all of his production assistance.
