On Oct. 2, 2014, New Music New Haven continued its 2013-2014 season with music by student composers – Daniel Schlosberg, Benjamin Wallace, Reena Esmail and Nicholas DiBerardino – and by featured guest composer Andrew Ford.

This program included two compositions by composer Andrew Ford for small chamber ensembles: On Winter's Traces and The Scattering of Light. On Winter's Traces draws from musical material from Ford's first symphony, and The Scattering of Light was written for the centenary of the University of Queensland.
