At the onset of the COVID-19 lockdown, the Moreau | VanTuinen Duo initiated a Call for Miniatures Project aimed at fostering remote music collaborations. They published a call via social media platforms inviting composers to write one-minute works for tuba or euphonium and percussion. The met with each composer to workshop their composition, livestreamed the work as part of their "Miniature Matinee" concert series, and made high-quality recordings of each entry. The project resulted in 84 newly composed works from 50 different composers ranging from undergraduate students to professional composers, representing 10 countries around the world.
