This is in line with the 2-day Research Summit conference where I will also present a paper on the imaginary of Asia among Philippine contemporary music composers. This [...]

A bunch of composers with immigrant backgrounds were selected to contribute one song, with the culmination of a music drama named "Coming Home" emerging from such a compilation. Check [...]
