Interview: turning trombone puppies into musical interfaces

Elevate Ensemble in rehearsal

I recently did an interview with Elevate Ensemble about my two upcoming premieres on their Stravinsky: Reconstructed program. In it, I talk about my first musical experiences, my compositional process, and the inspirations for my two pieces. I also explore similarities in the planning process between composing and computer programming.

Check out the interview!

And if you’re in the bay area, come to the concert on October 2nd. It promises to be a very interesting program, focused around Stravinsky’s Octet for Winds, with smaller pieces exploring each of the subgroupings of the instrumentation, plus a new concerto for piano-four-hands duo ZOFO, written by Nick Vasallo.
