This entry in the series features chamber works by eight SCI composers: Phillip Schroeder's Metaphors, a musical adaptation of the nonlinear poetry of Marck L. Beggs; Vera Ivanova's Aftertouch, an exploration of the sensitivity of piano keys under different pressures; Mark Engebretson's Two Duos, a study combining traditional and modern means of working with harmony; Chan Ji Kim's 9 Years, an homage to mentorship and musical development; Leonard Mark Lewis' Three Etudes for Piano, a study of timbre and pianistic technique; Aleksander Sternfeld-Dunn's Sonata for Alto Saxophone and Piano, a "pure music" piece blending traditional and modern melodic language; Piotr Szewczyk's Apparitions, a musical portrait of ghostly apparitions floating through a forest; and Alan Chan's Daughter's Lullaby, a musical setting of Nicky Schildkraut's story of a girl's journey as a Korean child adopted by Western parents.
