This summer NANO Fiction paired flash writers, Callie Collins, Kelly Luce, Michael McGriff, Vincent Scarpa, Jessica Richardson, and Matthew Salesses with two of Austin’s premiere composers Russell Podgorsek and Hermes Camacho to create original new works that blended the two story telling forms. Inspired by sehr Rasch, a German tempo marking for very fast music, Podgorsek and Camacho composed full–yet very short–arrangements for each of the featured stories.

NANO readers will be able to experience the music, stories, and sheet music as a triptych within the fall issue (subscribe to reserve your copy), but for those of you in Austin, TX, and the surrounding areas, we’re presenting two live performances!

Both events are free and open to the public. See you there!

Generously supported by NewMusicUSA and the Butler School of Music outreach department.
