Jeffrey Mumford, a gifted composer and one of Lorain County Community College’s Distinguished Professors, was honored this past February as composer-in-residence at the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C. During this time the gallery presented three concerts featuring his incredible new music compositions.

"I was deeply honored to be associated with one of my favorite institutions in the world. As a student growing up in Washington, D.C. the National Gallery was practically my ‘second home’ – particularly the Impressionist and 17th Century Dutch galleries," Mumford said. "These particular galleries contain works with such resonant light as to literally invite you into the canvas. It is this light in so many of the paintings I regularly visit in the National Gallery, which consistently inspires my work."

{mosimage}Mumford, an Oberlin resident, was named a Distinguished Professor at LCCC in 2009. In his role he advances the creation of new music through composition courses that he develops and teaches.

Mumford has a history of important commissions and performances. He has collaborated with some of today’s most celebrated artists and has received commissions for organizations like the Chicago Symphony Orchestra and Miller Theater.

He recently launched a campaign to raise money for his new CD project using the crowdsourcing website "Kickstarter."  As a composer with a long and prestigious career, it is still challenging for Mumford (and others like him) to keep his work alive without exploring alternative funding sources such as crowdsourcing. Crowdsourcing websites like "Kickstarter" allow fans and supporters of projects to use their dollars to promote the creation of new works in accordance with their own interests rather than in response to decisions by record labels or production houses.

This new Albany Records project will be Mumford’s eighth CD, his second on the label. "Kickstarter" backers have the opportunity to contribute anywhere from $25 to $1,000 or more.  Project backers can contribute online, and will receive a copy of the CD and other rewards once the project is fully funded.

This new CD will contain about eight works and will feature artists Miranda Cuckson, Julia Bruskin, Christina Jennings, Lura Johnson, Eliesha Nelson, Scott Dixon, Winston Choi, the Argento Chamber Ensemble, and the Avalon Quartet.  Several of the works were recorded live the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C.
