The Showroom, London​ and Filmmaker Producer ​Reece Ewing​ host IN·​FLO·R​ES·C​ENCE –​ a new interdisciplinary platform for audiences to encounter compositions and conversations where sound and art can cross-pollinate and regenerate.

In its introductory digital stage, ​IN·​FLO·R​ES·​CENCE e​xists as an unfolding social media platform across Instagram, Vimeo, and The Showroom website whereby audiences can discover music compositions, interdisciplinary conversations, listening sessions, and behind-the-scenes creative inspirations. ​IN·​FLO·​RES·​CENCE​ brings together 10 Composers, 1 Solo Pianist, a diverse mix of music and art professionals, and an ever-growing global audience. Each of the participating composing musicians (​J.D. Allen​,​ Bokani Dyer​, Sarathy Korwar​,​ Nduduzo Makhathini​,​ Siya Makuzeni​,​ Elaine Mitchener​,​ Corey Mwamba​, Thandi Ntuli​,​ Luis Carlos Pérez​, and ​Leyanis Vald​é​s Reyes​) were invited to create a piece for solo piano around 1 minute in length responding to the changes to daily life during the global coronavirus outbreak. These individual pieces will all be interpreted and performed by the project’s first Artist-in-Residence, Cuban New York-based Pianist, Composer, and Band Leader Elio Villafranca​, throughout the duration of the project.
