About the album

ATMA Classique presents the world premiere recording of The Thailand HRDs, an epic 35-movement string quartet by critically-acclaimed Canadian composer, Frank Horvat. Performed by the world-renowned Mivos Quartet, the work musically animates 35 photos by Luke Duggleby. His collection details victims in Thailand who were killed trying to stop powerful interests that wanted to destroy their community’s environment.

Each movement is inspired by the story behind the photos in Luke Duggleby's essay, For Those Who Died Trying. Following Buddhist tradition, Duggleby traveled across Thailand placing a portrait of each victim at the place where they were murdered or went missing. The Thailand HDRs utilizes just the musical pitches/letters found in each victims' name, weaving their unique musical DNA into each piece

Born in Ottawa, Frank Horvat now lives by the lake in Toronto with Lisa Horvat, his wife/manager. Frank is an Associate Composer at the Canadian Music Centre and a member of the Canadian League of Composers. He is passionate about social issues related to human rights and the environment.
