Music for Theater
When working with theater artists, dancers, and interdisciplinary collaborators, I always have a strong focus on the human voice and how we can use it not only for singing but producing sounds to heighten storytelling. I also have a fascination with abandoned instruments (i.e. a rescued melodica and balalaika) and using found objects and body percussion to create soundscapes.

Untitled Workshop (playing around kitchen tables)
Directed by Mauricio Salgado, this devised work deals with trauma and the many ways we repress it, express it and how it is triggered. The whole work happens within the span of a meal preparation. Stay tuned for NYC performance in 2019.
