Kickstarter: Robin Heifetz "Works from Six Continents"

Los Angeles composer and pianist, Robin Julian Heifetz, is embarking on an impressive and exciting musical project.  Robin has compiled compositions from a living composer on each continent (bar-Antarctica) to create a unique cross-section of works representing the vast cultures and diversities present on Earth.

Robin has done the majority of the work for this project already and is now seeking funding to bring this endeavor to life.  You can read more about the works and the composers involved at his Kickstarter page linked below.

As a composer, Robin specializes in electroacoustic media. He received his doctorate in composition from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and has served as composer-in-residence at EMS Stockholm (Sweden), Colgate University (USA), Tel-Aviv University (Israel), the Institute for Psychoacoustics and Electronic Music (Belgium), and Audio-Digital Laboratories (Canada), among others.

  1. "Works from Six Continents"-- hardly a new idea. Vienna Modern Masters started its "Music from Six Continents" series in 1990. I hope the music on the CD is more original than your title!

  2. Listing on Kickstarter, the world’s most popular crowdfunding platform, the Tiga project offered rewards in the form of sketchbooks, notebooks and art prints featuring work by the three artists.
