Photos from Departure Duo premiere

A few months ago, I finished a new work for soprano and double bass with text by poet Eleanor Goodman. Departure Duo had commissioned the work, and gave several performances last month in New York and Boston — they are ideal collaborators and were so attentive to the world of the piece.

Rehearsing Ebb and flow

In Beijing for the month with percussionist Zhang Yongyun, pipa player Xia Yuyan, and writer & interdisciplinary artist Autumn Tsai for performances of my new work Ebb and flow.

A few images from rehearsal yesterday:


I visited Heidelberg last week to catch Xia Yuyan’s concert with Jiang Shaofeng at the opening of the CHIME Collection:

It was wonderful to see/hear them both in Germany and also to discuss with Yuyan drafts for our upcoming nanpa/percussion collaboration for September.
