Description: Originally commissioned by Janis Brenner and Dancers, "Once You Are Not A Stranger" is the feature title of a 40-minute collaborative media work that looks at the idea of empathy and "otherness" in a multicultural, multi-ethnic, and multi-religious world. The ETHEL string quartet version was composed as a response to the 2016 presidential elections. The quartet premiered the piece as part of Composers Concordance's Roundtable concert at (le) Poisson Rouge on January 26th, 2017. They are featured in this recording along with Patrick Derivaz on bass guitar and Svjetlana Bukvich on synthesizers. The piece was released on album EXTENSION (Navona Recordings). Mastering by Bob Ludwig.
