We Were Tired of Living in a House (2021)

The title comes from a wonderful children's book of the same name by Liesel Moak Skorpen which my mother used to read to me. Being stuck indoors for the past year with my family, we took great refuge in our many dance parties (we even got a mini disco ball). We listened to a lot of Daft Punk, Imogen Heap, Lymbyc Systym, and Sophie, which had a profound impact on our overall mood and outlook. I did my best to create a work which embodied many of my favorite elements of their music as well as making a few musical nods to the oboe quartets of Britten, Bresnick, and Dagmar.

Galveston '89 (2019)

Before my father and my mother's father died, my family used to take trips to Galveston, TX in the summers of the late '80s. I recently came across some old home videos from those trips and was inspired to create a distilled moment in time for my mother, where we were all alive and happy.

Our programs are made possible by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of the Office of the Governor and the New York State Legislature. Our programs are also supported, in part, by the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council.
