Current Projects

My new opera, How to Survive a 100-Hour Workweek, is set for October premieres at Stanford and UCSD. This work explores bodily and vocal relationships to labor, institutional discipline, and glitch in late capitalism. Laborers (played by Hillary Jean Young, Ashley Cutright, and Jonathan Nussman) struggle to stay afloat amidst snippets of inspirational advice from iconic voices and lifestyle video bloggers. Teaser track features Judy G, Ronald R, and The Reverend NVP.

New Sound Design for AXALAPAZCOS project

I am excited to be designing the sound for Lyndsay Bloom's breathtaking film installation about high-altitude crater lakes in Central Mexico. Lyndsay recently received a Russell Grant to help fund this project.
