Tracks from RETURN (next three videos) — Live performances of three tracks from the Grand Valley State University New Music Ensemble‘s most recent release, RETURN. The tracks were created by Adam Cuthbert, Daniel Rhode, and Matthew Finch, GVSU alumni and founders of Brooklyn-based record label slashsound. The ensemble parts were composed by me.
