Alize Francheska

Virtuosic and versatile opera singer Alize Francheska collaborated with us remotely for this episode! We had a great chat about her musical upbringing, influences, and the highlights of her career. We also created a beautiful and eclectic set of pieces together. Instead of improvising, we devised a round robin game and created our tracks one layer at a time.

Huge thanks to Alize and all the work she put into this!
