We're pleased to welcome Pittsburgh, PA composer Philip Thompson to the PARMA family! Thompson is a classically trained composer with a fascination for pop culture.  His repertoire includes chamber and orchestral works, opera, film, and electro-acoustic music.

Thompson will be working with PARMA on a multi-disciplinary release of his chamber works performed by Pittsburgh based ensemble, the IonSound Project.  Thompson's chamber works will be accompanied by a video of robotic fabric sculptures created by Garth Zeglin, along with other interdisciplinary works of art.

The recording for the release occurred last month at Audible Images in Pittsburgh and is currently in post-production.  You can learn more about the music and the release on Thompon's Fractured Atlas page: www.fracturedatlas.org/site/fiscal/profile?id=11066.
