Carmen Braden’s second studio album Songs of the Invisible Summer Stars celebrates her chamber compositions ranging from trios to the title track septet. Featured on the album on piano, Carmen is joined by a powerhouse of East Coast chamber musicians passionate about contemporary music: Norman Adams, Derek Charke, Nadia Francavilla, Suzanne Lemieux, Susan Sayle and Gillian Smith. Returning as producer and percussionist, Mark Adam works with recording engineer John D. S. Adams of Stonehouse Sound to bring out Carmen’s musical explorations of her environment with a striking clarity of detail and a richness of sonic colours.
