our Kickstarter goal of $400 is to cover the basic production costs so that any additional money from ticket sales or the Kickstarter campaign will go directly to musicians. these costs includes rehearsal space rental, sheet music printing, and posters.
my true hope for this ensemble is that I can compensate musicians for their time and energy, as well as the transportation costs to get to rehearsals and the concert. the ideal goal is $1700, which would include a $50 honorarium paid to each musician for the performance.

broken bow ensemble performs "murmur"
Chapel Performance Space
4649 Sunnyside Ave N, Seattle
murmur explores through sound the subtleties of human consciousness, awareness and experience. as our society becomes more interconnected, it can feel as if time is accelerating and the sense of self, of authenticity and intention, can be lost in a scattered existence. by slowing the experience of time through music, the listener's attention is brought to detail. this focus can open a door to a deeper awareness of the environment, sensations in the body, and other people.
the broken bow ensemble is a 26-piece chamber orchestra dedicated to performing contemporary classical music. the bows are broken, as are the expectations--starting anew and moving forward with the fragments that remain.

thank you to Ian Bell for shooting the video, to the ensemble for their dedication, and you for your consideration in supporting the musicians.
