American Composers Forum (ACF) and Innova Recordings are pleased to announce the selected artists and their projects for our Bay Area Pilot program. As ACF strives to be a “go-to” space for artists while centering equity, this new program pilots a different model for the label, making it more inclusive and accessible to artists. Applicants were invited to submit projects representing a variety of musical approaches and at different stages in their recording plans. All applicants were invited to seek recording advice and referrals from innova staff.
The eight projects selected for this pilot program were chosen by a diverse group of curators from a pool of 35 Bay Area based applicants. The curators who selected the final projects were Sahba Aminikia, Vân-Ánh Vo, Alejandro T. Acierto, Marshall Trammell, and Sarah Cahill.
