To record an album of cello works by Dutch based composer Kate Moore, performed by internationally renowned cellist Ashley Bathgate (Bang on a Can All-Stars) for New York label Cantaloupe.
In 2010, American cello star Ashley Bathgate with Australian piano star Lisa Moore, invited composer Kate Moore to write a new composition. Ashley and Kate had worked together with Bang on a Can All-Stars in New York City. So there it began and the new piece Velvet was soon to follow. Spending New Year's Eve in NYC, Ashley premiered the piece at Le Poisson Rouge on Bleeker Street with Lisa. It was a big success and so the decision was to extend the project to the creation of an album featuring this work as the headline piece! We're raising money to support the cost of hiring a studio for three days to record the entire album next April 2014. We'd love to include you in the process. By supporting us to make the album happen we want to thank you and by showing our gratitude your name will appear on the album and we'll send you a signed copy of the final product.
