My Awarded Projects
Megablip (2016), for layered acoustic and processed violas
I composed Megablip while thinking about the vastness of space. The warmth and light of our sun makes life on Earth possible. Compared to our Earth, the sun seems infinite and massive. But compared the galaxy and beyond, the sun is but a mere blip in space. I find this shift in perspective full of paradox, filling me with fear while simultaneously calming me down.

MIND THE GAP connects various styles, eras, and genres through group improvisation and composition. Bird in Paris unites music from French Composer and an American composer. Impressionism and Bebop. Claude Debussy and Charlie Parker.
