Abstract/Artist's Statement

For the concerts I gave in November 2013 and April 2014 I worked with small ensembles, using mostly standard music notation to write compositions. Since 2012 I have become increasingly interested in improvising music, and in the fall semester experimented with basic compositions for improvising musicians. In the spring semester I composed specifically for a quintet that rehearsed and improvised regularly. Consistent rehearsal was important in the process of revising compositions, alleviating the problem of anticipating how parts would really sound. It was exciting to hear the development compositions through listening and group arranging. I think that music can have supernatural characteristics and coordinate with imaginary and real spaces.
