This is a trailer for Stephen Taylor's 2007 documentary that follows four young composers and two groups of musicians trying to carve out musical and artistic space for themselves.
The film follows them while on a self-produced tour of the northeast, with all of the headaches, setbacks and triumphs that accompany such an undertaking. The composers reflect on why they write the kind of music that they do, where their inspiration comes from, and how challenging it is to overcome the constraints associated with hundreds of year of classical musical tradition.
The film features compositions by and interviews with composers Judd Greenstein, David T. Little, Missy Mazzoli, and Patrick Burke, with performances by the acclaimed groups, NOW Ensemble and NEWSPEAK.
