Transformation is an album created by the 10th-grade class at Kaufman Music Center’s Special Music School in collaboration with Grammy-nominated flutist, composer, vocalist and 2019-20 Kaufman Music Center Artist-in-Residence Nathalie Joachim. Special Music School is NYC’s only K-12 public school that teaches music as a core subject. Transformations comprises seven original works created via a remote, group-driven recording process stemming from the quarantine due to the COVID-19 pandemic. From a self-generated soundbank of musical material, the class worked in small groups via Zoom to create new pieces that represent their interpretations of "transformation.” Their sonic explorations of textures and timbres have produced pieces ranging from ethereal beauty to pulsating rock rhythms
