Commissioning new works for solo cello by today’s most forward-thinking composers that encourage social change and empowerment for women and girls.

 

Forward Music Project confronts the audience with a visceral experience of music, light, and stories that explore a range of issues facing women today, from the LGBTQ+ to reproductive rights, sexual violence and empowerment. These works are performed through the lens of solo cello, electronics, projection art by S Katy Tucker, and audio interludes from the composers. In performance, I sing, chant, fight, gasp, and breathe life into these new works. Forward Music Project premiered in the Spring Revolution Festival at National Sawdust in Brooklyn, NY on March 1, 2017. This season, Amanda is In-Residence at National Sawdust and will premiere five new works for FMP 2.0: in this skin in March 2019. Forward Music Project is on the touring roster of National Sawdust Projects.
