Coming up on the next Modern Notebook with Tyler Kline: I’ll have music for cello by Jorge Sosa called “Reimagined Spring,” and pieces by Shawn Okpebholo and Julia Perry. Plus, this piece by Carmen Sandim for solo piano titled “Amanhecer ao Entardecer,” meaning “Dawn to Dusk.”

Then: Composer Hannah Selin experienced some strange, deep dreams during the lockdowns of 2020 and 2021… and these dreams inspired her piece “Dream Journal.” This is music composed for voices, pianos, toy pianos, and electronics, seamlessly woven together to craft a musical atmosphere like no other.

Plus, pieces by Sarah Wallin Huff, Jorge Sosa, Shawn E. Okpebholo, Julia Perry, Ben Nobuto, Vivian Fung, Sarah Rossy, Michael Zev Gordon, and others; and performances by Unheard-of//Ensemble, pianist Andree-Ann Deschenes, baritone Will Liverman with pianist Paul Sanchez, Experiential Orchestra, Latitude 49, Jasper String Quartet, Chromic Duo, cellist India Gailey, and more.
