This week, we find Phil BACK in the closet, Peter hiding in his Mother-in-law's bedroom, and Chris relegated to the kitchen where someone continued to make food throughout the podcast…what else would you expect? The only good news is we visited with the amazing, young, and award-winning composer Kelijah Dunton about non-traditional paths through music, passion projects, and compositional process. Every piece, even the first one, has been published, and his career is only getting started. We talk about mentorship, learning everyone else's part, jazz and hip-hop influences in his writing, his recent works about Nelson Mandela, his curiosity about the intersection of smell and sound, and his upcoming visit to Madison for the 2023 Wisconsin State Music Conference, Oct 25-28. Join us and take a moment to learn more about this deep-thinking, old soul of a composer!
