Work Overview

I am attracted to heterophony. The same story recounted by many voices, the same scene observed through many eyes. I like plurality in music. Internal plurality: the clash of different logics, of different life-stories unexpectedly interacting and external plurality: the work itself an object open to a multiplicity of viable perspectives. As such, Same Steps is one of a number of my recent works in the tradition of 'open- form' music.
