Composer and avante garde jazz musician Fred Ho fought for his art, fought for justice, and fought cancer, all at the same time. Connect with his life and vision!
The documentary film Fred Ho’s Last Year has just completed a successful festival run, and now you can help us print the academic release DVD’s, view the film, and take home some groundbreaking Fred Ho music in gorgeous CD’s. Your contribution helps the film to introduce Fred Ho to new audiences for decades to come!
And there’s more! A big chunk of this fundraiser will go to bringing Fred Ho’s musicians and collaborators to the Asian American Studies Conference in Chicago, which will allow universities the opportunity to invite the band to their campuses. Fred’s Afro Asian Music Ensemble has been going strong for 35 years, and we need your help to let it grow for another 35 years!

New York/ Canadian composer Sylvain Leroux achieved what many told him was impossible: he raised $25,000 to conduct a four-month experimental music education project in Guinea. After the successful Kickstarter campaign, Sylvain arrived in Conakry, Guinea this February and used his invention, the chromatic tambin (an updated version of the local traditional tambin–or Fula flute) to teach a group of children to read and write music.

Greetings to all!
I am Amy Denio, a singer, multi-instrumentalist, composer, improviser and producer. I’ve been creating and collaborating for most of my life. My main instruments are voice, sax, clarinet, accordion, bass and guitar, though I love making music with almost anything ~ heavy metal(s), balloons, theremin, my mother’s gallstones in a glass jar, slapping water in a bathtub or singing in a cistern, making field recordings. Sound is my language.

International Anthem Recording Co. (IARC) is a new record label on the eve of creation by us – David Allen, Joe Darling, and Scottie McNiece of Uncanned Music – to promote the work of artists we’ve presented and recorded in Chicago, Illinois.
We started Uncanned Music in 2011 to provide unique soundtracks for spaces – to supervise music and customize playlists for bars and restaurants.
