EMBODIED (2018– )

EMBODIED is a cycle of works(-in-progress) in which the empathetic resonances of subtle corporeal nuances in musical sound are offered as a composed communal concert experience. Plans include music for violin, voice (soprano), tuba and percussionist. Methodically, these works also explore tight, explorative composer-performer collaboration. As of writing (Dec 2018), the first two solo pieces exist.
