Artist Statement
I am a composer, pianist, and interdisciplinary artist. My compositions span acoustic, electro-acoustic, and electronic works, and I am interested in the coexistence of equal-tempered and microtonal sounds. My interdisciplinary pieces integrate music and movement, giving the body of the musician a more active role. Fusing sound and movement allows me to form unusual connective threads that encourage closer inspection.

Music and the body are central to my practice. To me, a score is only a piece of paper without the performer working to activate it. This notion is rooted in my background as a performer of over ten years, which influences my process: I imagine the live performance in order to create a score that will come alive beyond the page.

My work is non-narrative, conveying raw meaning or emotion rather than telling a story. My inspiration comes from observing and hyper-analyzing human behavior. I hypothesize, research, then deconstruct and distill my findings to extract essence.
