NEWS: November 30, 2021: All composers who submitted scores for “Prayers for a Feverish Planet” have been contacted with results. (Some emails bounced back, please let me know if you haven’t heard.)
Thank you to ALL who sent me works — wow! A phenomenal response of more than 170 pieces (actually, 316 individual movements!) from composers in 35 countries. Website updates ongoing; there is a dedicated project page for “Prayers” — be sure to check back for more info.
NEWS: Fall 2021: I’m delighted to have been chosen as a University of Minnesota Institute for Advanced Studies (IAS) Residential Fellow to work on “Prayers for a Feverish Planet.” The fellowship has provided the time for me to really dig in to the works sent and begin crafting a series of programs. (Also, living in Minneapolis, even for a brief time, is amazing.)
NEWS: I’m thrilled to be a part of Tyler Kline’s Orchard, releasing on Neuma Records in January of 2022.
