10 copies of Rhythm Abstraction: Azure by Frank Macchia
Prize: Rhythm Abstraction: Azure by Frank Macchia
Eligible Winners: 10
Rhythm Abstraction: Azure is the first volume of new compositions created as a follow up to 2018’s
release Rhythm Kaleidoscope. As with that release, Brock Avery improvised drum and percussion
solos. Frank Macchia then composed music for woodwinds and orchestra to Brock’s creations. Azure
is the first of three extended play albums of 6-7 compositions which will be released starting in
January and followed up in April and July. In Azure we have a created a group of pieces that continue
our quest for honoring the art of improvisation with a “stream-of-consciousness” sense of
composition, where Frank reacted to whatever Brock created with his drum improvisations and
continued to pursue the use of tone rows and motifs to create a music journey that ebbs and flows
with the rhythm and takes the listener on a journey through rhythm and sound.
Ten lucky winners will be chosen and will have seven days from the conclusion of the contest to claim their prize.
