"The idea for this piece started when I was sitting outside on a windy day and became aware of the sounds around me. After thinking about it for probably a little too long, I thought it would be interesting to find other ways to represent the familiar sounds we connect with. I started with something personal. This piece is a couple of sound clips from a concert I went to with my brother, which is one of my favorite memories."
My time at Peters Valley was something that is irreplaceable to me. Having freshly finished my bachelors degree I found that the classes filled in the gaps in my technical education. In addition, being surrounded by so much talent and creativity really pushed me to step outside of my comfort zone and just try many different things without the pressure of expecting anything to be any good. Peters Valley broadened my horizons and allowed me to create in a pressure free environment.
