Watch Now: New Music Solidarity Fund Solo Marathon

On Thursday, May 14, 2020, flutist Claire Chase performed a four-hour live marathon from her living room of music from the Density 2036 project. The marathon was generously hosted by Music on the Rebound and in support of the New Music Solidarity Fund, administered by New Music USA.

Missed the live event? You can still watch the livestream recording!

We highly recommend listening with headphones for a truly incredible sound experience.

All donations collected in response to the show go directly to the New Music Solidarity Fund, which supports musicians in our community whose livelihoods have disappeared completely in the past two months.

Between live sets, Raquel Klein shared short interviews with composers and new videos of remote collaborations with beloved artist-colleagues from afar. Below is a set list and a curated collection of recordings from our site and NewMusicBox articles about and conversations with many of the composers being featured as well as with Claire which should keep you all busy while waiting for the marathon!
