Future Splendor Sounds

Our anthology, Future Splendor: Celebrating a New Renaissance, is designed to be a sensory experience. The written word is layered with sound from our curated playlist of Jazz, Afrobeats, Hip Hop, and Alternative R&B. Music is a companion to the themes weaved throughout the four sections of the collection: Vessels of Memory, Today’s Been So Surreal, Folded Worlds & Great Experiments, and Star Vision, Eyes on Tomorrow.
