Works In Progress vol. 21

This album is part of the CMAS Recordings Archive. Sometimes the pieces are radio ready, sometimes they are capturing a moment in the process. More importantly, everything in the archive was created by CMAS students. Everything. For every single piece, be it live or in studio, there was a student or students composing it, students preparing/practicing the performance, students selecting and setting up all the gear, students running every single cable, in some cases even designing the room and/or stage setup, students running the recording sessions and live events sound, students mixing, hopefully students writing liner notes, and so on. It’s a lot to do at any age, let alone as teenagers. A lot of time, a lot of effort, a lot of care. Continually being added to, this archive is a reflection of the students over the years and their work and their Creative processes. The archive is a moment in time. And it’s only a small sample of what goes on in CMAS. It’s an honor to be part of it all.
