Playlist 7: Eclectic Waves

This month we put the focus on variety, and brought together quite a wide selection of sounds. From solo piano to electronics to sinfonietta, ancient to contemporary themes, animals to computers, delicate to heavy metal sounds. We hope you enjoy the wonderful work of this Eclectic bunch of composers, all featured by Making Waves for the first time.

Composers, Submit your recordings for consideration, and keep us up-to-date about your best or latest work!
