In addition to being SQ’s debut album, this CD is also the first professional recording of most of these pieces. We're also excited to share such great music by so many composers who are rising stars in the field, juxtaposed with other new works by several more established composers. 

The name of the album, Collider, comes from the work by Roger Zare entitled LHC, which stands for Large Hadron Collider. The LHC is "the world's largest and most powerful particle accelerator" owned and operated by CERN in Geneva, Switzerland (quoted from CERN's website). We also see this album as a *collision* (although hopefully much more orderly than a collision housed in the LHC) of several different styles of compositions written by 10 unique and powerful composers.  

And a big THANK YOU to the all of our supporters for contributing to our fundraising efforts on Kickstarter to produce this album! We couldn't do this without you!
