Contemporary Classical Collective (CCC)

The Contemporary Classical Collective (CCC) is an informal group of spirited musicians, dedicated to a sub-genre of contemporary classical music that variously goes under the label of neo-classical or indie-classical.

The musicians in this group are united by their passion for an increasingly popular musical style that is minimalistic, independent, and often collaborative. As with this group, composers and performers are well known to one another, and communicate frequently together via social media.

CCC is a truly international phenomena, including artists from all parts of the planet.

Compositions are often piano-based – although not exclusively. The music is often calm, relaxing, and meditative – again, this is not an absolute. Arrangements may include strings, harp, flute, and guitar.

Influences on this genre are far and wide, from the gentle tones and subtle harmonies of Erik Satie, Debussy, Brian Eno, and Nils Frahm.
