You might know classical music but…how many female, queer, classical contemporary composers do you know?

Who are we?

We are a group of classical musicians – one composer and five performers – who have come together to break new ground in contemporary classical music.

What are we doing?

We're creating an album with four original, unpublished works by the young, female, queer composer, Claudia Baulies, and we want your help to get this vital work out into the world.

Why is this important?

Contemporary classical music has always been at the forefront of sound experimentation. We believe it is only through the lifeblood of contemporary music that classical can be kept alive. Yet contemporary music has inherited the same shortcomings as its predecessor: A lack of diversity. Through this project we want to celebrate diversity, standing up for visibility and representation within our small but growing contemporary classical music community.

What do you get for backing this project?

We offer different tiers of support -- but among the rewards are:

  • Physical copies of the CD L’Aigua Trobada

  • Limited edition prints

  • Limited edition, hand bound copies of the scores

  • Private concerts with tea tasting

  • Your name highlighted as a sponsor of this project!

  • Your name listed in the acknowledgements & in dedicated copies of the CD

About the works

String Quartet no. 1 – Five Colors of Tea

This quartet was born from Claudia's desire to return to her origins as a composer: "I took my first steps in this artistic discipline guided by my mentor, Anahit Simonian, who encouraged me to use synesthesia – the sensory perception of one sense through stimuli received via another – as a source of inspiration. Years later, after further development of my compositional skills, I wanted to use this technique again and chose tea as my sensory vehicle, seeking to, in a way, translate the physical and spiritual sensations brought about by drinking tea into music."

String Quartet no. 2 – Archaean: When water was the Earth

"Ever since writing Five Colors of Tea, water has fascinated me -- and with this work I wanted to continue my exploration: Water as a physical element, essential for life; water as a symbol, heterogeneous, multifaceted, ever changing; water as a metaphor, as metamorphosis. This work explores three dimensions of water: Depth, release, and flow."

Two Winter Landscapes for Solo Violin

"This work for solo violin, more intimate than the previous two, explores two other forms that water takes when the temperature drops. When the outside world is cold and white, warmth must come from the inside. Snow and frost conduct the two landscapes described through the notes."

Morphing Clouds for violin, cello and piano

"This work is still in the process of composition. Nonetheless, I wanted to dedicate a few words to share my inspiration: Eternal transformation, boundlessness as definition, the lightness of air and the weight of a storm."

#04 / Tercer objectiu: 5000€!

Hola, Família,

Sembla increïble, però tot just fa cinc dies vàrem publicar el nostre segon objectiu... i ja està assolit! Ens hem arremangat les mànigues per presentar-vos el tercer objectiu: si arribem als 5000€, hi haurà un bonus track al CD! Endavant!

També volíem compartir amb vosaltres tres altres grans notícies: els mitjans estan fent ressò del nostre projecte. Recentment va sortir publicat a l'Associació Catalana d'Intèrprets de Música Clàssica i avui ens han publicat a la revista Enderrock !

A més a més, el dia 16 de juny, la Clàudia i la Nina seran entrevistades al programa "Assaig General" de Catalunya Música a les 18:00. Us hi esperem!


Hola, Familia,
