Fabian Almazan

Fabian Almazan, New York City, received $20,000 to compose new work for his ensemble Rhizome in a jazz-rooted improvisatory context; travel back to Cuba to collect audio samples and experience traditional, folkloric music from the region of his birth; continue experimenting with ways to run acoustic instruments, such as a grand piano, through audio-processing software; and work with a piano maker to pursue his interest in updating the piano as a modern instrument, adding built-in pick-ups.
