Original Works Commission

A bit about the project…
When live music disappeared overnight The Music Place (specialty brass and woodwind shop located in South Melbourne) put out a call for expressions of interest for a new original work composition as a way of doing something small to support the community. Scott van Gemert was commissioned to write a tune addressing themes arising from the global pandemic and their local impact on the music industry.

Once complete, fantastic Melbourne musicians brought it to life. We recorded, mixed and mastered it and it's now available for sale.
