After much deliberation a winner has been chosen in the Fast Forward Austin call for scores.

We received 113 entries. The quantity and quality of these submissions was humbling and overwhelming. There were many many excellent pieces to choose from. After carefully considering all submissions, the selection committee and the Aeolus quartet picked Dan Visconti’s Black Bend as this year’s winner. Dan will attend the festival and Aeolus will perform Black Bend during their set at Fast Forward Austin.

Additionally, we would like to recognize runners-up Ashley Fu-Tsun Wang and Michael-Thomas Foumai.

Thank you to all who entered this year’s call for scores!
