Having seen the Micro-Orchestra players at work, the eight MATA commissionees will enter into the intensive Monster Rally process. MATA has given each of them a place to work, and the M-O players will meet with them throughout the week in consultations, collaborative sessions and rehearsals. Some of these private and collaborative work sessions will be viewable in the Composers’ Petting Zoo, a series of storefront display exhibitions of real composers at work. A co-production with our sister arts organization Chashama, these Petting Zoo sessions bring the process of composing music directly into the public. Come by and witness the creation of new work, but – Do not feed the composers!
