Music

The musical work is, for me, a site where the irrational and the rational, the sensual and the conceptual, and, most basically, sound and silence, spar and dance and transcend their seeming dichotomies. Through ever-evolving interpretations of recurring musical materials, I explore the unity of memory and imagination—remembering as an act of imagining, and imagining as an act of remembering. My composing is inspired by movement and the contemplation of change, whether in the physical world or in the psyche. The physicality of musical performance and our emotional identification as listeners with its energy, gestures, and implicit drama are among its further driving forces. My early encounter with electroacoustic music also strongly affected how I approach musical creation, stoking my fascination with the fluidity of time and my attentiveness to the rhythmic, timbral, and harmonic nuances that lend what I hope to be a richer resonance to every moment.
