Projects
"I've always wanted the H Project to be a mixed configuration, 2 players, 10 players, and everything in between, to be compelling, and burning, and fun, and cool, with no fear to be simply gorgeous, and the next moment monstrous and grotesque, if it has to be. The whole story told with eloquence and grace, and with raw power emotionally charged with life. "
Hank Hehmsoth

Integral to H Project's work is a series of collaborations with many of the world's foremost art, education, and high tech foundations and enterprises. Covering a wide gamut of world music, new classical, latin and more, here are some highlights.
