Music has a unique ability to tell a story that reverberates deep within us—and continues to do so long after the actual sound has receded into silence. I’m compelled by patterns and process; particularly processes that inform the creation of musical narrative. These days I’m particularly intrigued as to how this intersects with memory and with technology. During my stay at SFPC, I’m eagerly exploring many new and dynamic avenues of expression whether they fall under the umbrella of “interactive music” or are simply something I have yet to discover.
