Current Projects

Here-There Project, with Alarm Will Sound and collaborator Stefani Byrd, 2020–2021.

[New Commission], for Jesse Orth, Tuba, spring 2021

Impressions of the Sky from Underwater
for Transient Canvas, fall 2020.



My theatrical work Ofelia's Life Dream is reimagined as a short film, and premieres as part of Guerilla Underground in November 2020.


I've been awarded a fellowship by Transient Canvas to create a new work for bass clarinet, marimba, and electronics.


Alarm Will Sound has provided a grant through the Matt Marks Impact Fund for a new intermedia collaboration. Here-There (working title) explores movement, stasis, migration, and desire with a lens to abandoned, apocalyptic, and overgrown landscapes. I'm collaborating with video artist Stefani Byrd, and we recently went on a filming and field recording expedition to various abandoned sites around northern California.


Territories, Refrains, a collaboration with Ensemble Adapter, premiered in Berlin in February 2020. For this work, I transcribed the sounds of fauna from diverse ecosystems worldwide, including many species of insects, wild dogs, birds, and frogs.
