Music directly speaks to our inner selves. It can express the sublime beauty we experience in the world or can shine a light on our darkest secrets and desires. Simply put, it makes us feel.
This power of music manifests in all of its varied forms, from traditional Western art and folk music, to music found across the globe, to abstract and experimental forms.
As a composer, I take this rich palette of influences and use them to create works that challenge the listener to experience music in a new ways.
