Q

Good evening teacher,
I want to give my boyfriend the emotion of his concert. I would like to be updated on the dates of the upcoming concerts.

Hi! Thanks for asking. Keep an eye on my Concerts page on my website. I'll very likely be in Florence for a choral festival in 2021, if not sooner!

Q

Have you tackled any Native American vocal traditions yet? Are you planning to?

I did *attempt* a tackle during The Drop That Contained the Sea. I wanted to originally make the 'snow' movement about some first nations people... perhaps in Aleut or Yupik, or even something in a northern European indigenous language, like Sami. I did a ton of research, talked to some scholars from a native American museum up in Fairbanks, Alaska, and hunted down some singers who performed in Yupik. Ultimately I gave up. The reason was twofold: one, finding a pre-existing text that made sense for the overall theme of the album wasn't working out. (Apparently 'snow' is too mundane a topic to write about, if you're surrounded by it year round.) Two, I couldn't find the vocal talent that met my standards. I have, however, worked with indigenous peoples before. There will be a new track featuring a Paiwan children's choir, from the mountainous region of Taiwan, on the bonus EP of my Kickstarter campaign.

I hope a compliment is allowed. I love using your music when I work on cancer participants for free. It helps in the relaxation and healing process for each of them. Thank you for creating such wonderful music.

Thank you! That's quite humbling. Thank you for making my music a part of the great work that you do.

Hi! I'm taking some time off this year to compose, so unfortunately I don't have any concerts planned at the moment. But I'd definitely love to do something in France someday, if I can find an orchestra and choir to partner with.
