Faculty member Chris Reilly has received a project grants award from New Music USA during its third round of project grants. Chris received support from New Music USA for his project Intimate Instruments Workshop: Building the Linguaphone of Tremulous Communion. The Linguaphone is a two-player instrument that can’t be heard by an audience, built in a collaborative DIY workshop-performance.
Awards for New Music USA’s third round of project grants total $284,250 support artistic work involving a wide range of new American music. The program recognizes and supports the multiple roles composers and contemporary music practitioners play in the artistic landscape and responds to the creative spirit of collaboration between artists from multiple disciplines. The 62 awarded projects include concerts and recordings as well as dance, film, theater, opera, and more, all involving contemporary music as an essential element.
