Last week, we completed our mini-residency at the Bronx’s Horizon Juvenile Center in collaboration with Found Sound Nation and Carnegie Hall. Toomai made multiple visits to the detention center, where we worked with twelve young residents. We demonstrated our instruments and helped the participants record and sample excerpts from Toomai’s repertoire. They also composed their own music for us to play. After two weeks, we had eight original songs written by the residents of the facility. Toomai performed alongside the students for other Horizon residents, family, and staff. We left the facility with the young songwriters’ infectious new melodies stuck in our heads!
