An Invitation to Support Incoming 'Magic Hypercube' Resident

Better Farm will be visited June 5-11 by Forbes Graham, a composer and performer who runs Blaq Lghtn Productions out of Boston, Mass., and who was recently accepted into betterArts' residency program.

During his residency here, Forbes will be composing a trio for piccolo trumpet/trumpet, clarinet, and cello inspired by magic hypercubes. Magic hypercubes are a mathematical sequence in which the hypercubes ("size n") are such that the sum total of n elements along any axis equal the same number. Forbes has begun to explore a five-dimensional magic hypercube, which will be the basis for his composition at Better Farm.

Forbes has created a web page at to fund his betterArts residency. You can learn more about his vision and help support him by clicking here.
