a story of music connecting people

Connecting the Dots

On our journey around the world, we are exploring what places sound like. 

Anna plays music for bass clarinet solo and works with local composers to create and perform new pieces. Sebastian records ambient sound and video for an additional layer of imagery.


Connecting the Dots aims to connect people & music, composition & improvisation, 
culture & nature, image & sound. Each dot on the map represents a fellow musician. 
By telling our story, we seek to connect those dots with what we deem important.
