A Special Thanks to Our Co-producers from Tilted Axes
Dear co-producers, sponsors, and supporters,
Thank you for much for your support throughout the spring and summer. With your help, we’ve been able to present a number of free performances to the public.
Most recently we completed our residency at the 27th Annual Concert of Colors in Detroit at the Detroit Institute of Arts and the Michigan Science Center. Over two days we were able to perform for a couple thousand people live and many more than that through television.
The response was incredible. Every paper and magazine made us a Critics’ Pick and we were well represented on the the radio, WDET and CJAM especially.
With your help, we created a new type of work that will resonate for a long time. Now we have something that can be presented with other museums, science centers, and transformative community arts organizations. This will come.
If you will be receiving an award from our last campaign (T-shirt, CD, etc.), you will be getting notice of this shortly. If you want to pick up some more or want to encourage a friend to support us, you can always send them to this link: https://bit.ly/2Y1gvOb
And so, we thank you again on this 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moonwalk.

six words vs. thesaurus
“…a driving and rather harsh energy redolent of rock, as well as a clean sense of melodicism … the music’s momentum and intricate cross-rhythms rarely let up, making the occasional infectious tunes that emerge all the more beautiful for surprise.” – The Village Voice

Echoes and Dust (UK) Interview with Patrick Grant
The creator of Tilted Axes: Music for Mobile Electric Guitars discusses his recent album A Sequence of Waves and his Detroit Music Awards nomination for Outstanding Classical Recording.
