TwtrSymphony Continues to soar
TwtrSymphony is about new music—about getting music of new composers out to the world—sharing this music to new audiences. We are an orchestra of musicians who connected via Twitter. You don't get more 'social media' than that!

Our Music so far...
Symphony No. 2, Birds of a Feather
is complete. "Murmuration", the fourth and final movement was released on December 6th. It's been a long time in coming but well worth the wait. And this is JUST the beginning.

TwtrSymphony is a new concept in the symphony orchestra-musicians remotely record their part, with the final product put together in the studio. We are champions of new orchestra music, recording music of the 21st century.
We'll be launching a kick starter in a couple of weeks. We hope keep following our progress, support our kick starter and see what the future holds.
The Process: Each musician is given their part and a click track. They record it on their own time leaving them free to take on other music related projects.When each musician is done with their recording they send it to our sound engineer who puts the tracks together to create a full orchestra sound, without having the expense of a hall.
The music we're performing is also unique-limited to 140 seconds per track. Each track is the pure essence of the music, with no time for long drawn-out developments often associated with classical music. Our Music Director and Resident Composer,
wrote his Symphony No. 2 Birds of a Feather specifically for the musicians of TwtrSymphony. This four movement work trimmed off the excess to capture the bare nugget for each movement of the symphony.
Part of what makes Twitter unique is the terse conversations that take place. It isn't a place where long, drawn out diatribes are posted. Rather, Twitter is communication boiled down to the essentials. Conversations happen, but they tend to be quick exchanges of ideas and concepts. TwtrSymphony captures that with short pieces filled with energy and intensity.
The musicians have finished recording the the final movement of
Birds of a Feather
, a symphony in four movements (9 mins total).
