MOSAIC COMPOSERS COLLECTIVE | Mosaic Composers Collective, featuring Kevin Arthur Jr., Aidan Arbona, Naamia Rivera, Murphy Severtson, Alexa Letourneau, and Athos Maelstrom, is a gathering of composers in pursuit of an intimate - yet fearless - sound exploration of humanity's many colorful spheres. Centered in curiosity, the Collective strives to create and curate that which challenges the world around them. Members of MoCoCo are communally inspired by a sense of "adventurousness, entrepreneurship, and fearlessness" (Alex Cuadrado, 2022), and hope to depict everyday life both as it is and as it could be. The Collective understands creativity as a measure of social (and political) amplification, and the music of MoCoCo composers often deals with current issues of safety, equality, and the pursuit of joy for individuals of marginalized backgrounds. To date, the music of MoCoCo composers has appeared at Imani Winds Chamber Music Festival, Ensemble Evolution Festival with the International Contemporary Ensemble, and New Music on the Point. This season, MoCoCo looks to celebrate the beauty of human individuality with the series "Sculpting the Self", including appearances at St. John's Evangelical Lutheran Church in Manhattan and National Sawdust in Brooklyn.
