In line with our mission to preserve and document both traditional and emerging forms of raga music, we have professionally recorded and released multiple albums and compilations of music by BRM ensembles.
We have three major records in development currently: Raga Maqam is a 14-person collaboration with Amir ElSaffar that fuses the music of Iraq maqam music with that of South Asian raga. In D was prompted by a conversation with the composer Terry Riley after he heard our version of his composition, In C, and encouraged us to explore new territory. This work will take some concepts of Riley’s minimalist masterpiece and root them in traditional raga frameworks with 15-20 musicians.
Lastly, in Spring 2020, BRM began working on a COVID quarantine-inspired album with BRM members recording from their homes during the nationwide shutdown.
