Canadian composer Frank Horvat received a grant from the Ontario Arts Council - Conseil des arts de l'Ontario—to complete 35 string quartet compositions that will accompany each of my photographs featured in my project, For Those Who Died Trying. Supported by Protection International, this project is dedicated to remembering fallen Thai human rights defender's, some cases going back 20+ years, by placing a portrait of the deceased at the exact place where they were killed or abducted.

About Musical DNA
Looking at the English spelling of each of the victims name in For Those Who Died Trying— composer Frank Horvat extracted the musical notes (A,E,C etc..). He then used them to compose a 2+ minute composition that he titled, the Musical DNA of that person! How incredible is that?

In the next few months, Frank will be working hard to complete all 35 pieces. Soon after, Frank and I will present a series of exhibitions that combines the photographs and their accompanying music! 

We will keep you posted as to when and where these will take place. 

For those who haven't seen the project, you can view it, here:  http://www.lukeduggleby.com/for-those-who-died-trying
