Projeto Arcomusical returns to Constellation to release its second album “Spinning in the Wheel.” The album will be available on March 10th, 2019 on National Sawdust Tracks. Projeto Arcomusical is a world music sextet reimagining the berimbau, an Afro-Brazilian musical bow, through unique and powerful chamber music. The ensemble formed in 2013 specifically to interpret MeiaMeia, the collaborative composition cycle co-composed by ensemble members Gregory Beyer and Alexis C. Lamb. Arcomusical released MeiaMeia as its first album in 2016 on Innova Recordings. That same year, Arcomusical received a Chamber Music America Classical Commissioning Grant that produced “Roda,” a kaleidoscopic, twenty-minute, four-movement work by Elliot Cole. Cole’s work features prominently on “Spinning in the Wheel.”

“Projeto Arcomusical doesn’t miss a beat. The sextet is so tuned in to one another that at times it becomes difficult (if not impossible) to tell where one instrument ends and another begins. The players are so precise, so blissfully engaged with their instruments and one another that the individual pieces and the individual players melt away, and you begin to discover the uniquely captivating character of the instrument itself.” – Maggie Molloy, Second Inversion, December 5, 2016
