Now that CalArts’ spring semester is underway, faculty and students are addressing the current COVID-19 quarantine era in creative ways, making art—as a salve for the soul or to help make sense of it all.
Composer, violist, and conductor Eyvind Kang, Mel Powell Chair and coordinator of the Musical Arts/Experimental Pop (ExPop) Specialization at CalArts, has been working with ExPop students, faculty, and friends to develop weekly playlists.
The first music set dropped earlier this week on Soundcloud, embedded for your listening, below:
For additional playlists, please visit the CalArts ExPop Decameron page.
