As composition, arrangement, editing, curation, and concert production, my work explores the historical and political rhetoric embedded within contemporary musical practices. I have collaborated with ensembles including Stile Nu, the Nieuw Ensemble, wild Up, Ensemble Linea, and Ugly Pug and participated in festivals including the Los Angeles Philharmonic Orchestra’s National Composers Intensive, the Prix Annelie de Man, Make Music Chicago, and the Tampering Festival. In 2019 I released my debut single with Stile Nu and in 2020 I’ll release additional recordings with Stile Nu and Ugly Pug, the latter of which will also present three performances of my music in Amsterdam this April.
I received my Master’s degree in composition from the Conservatorium van Amsterdam in 2018, where I studied with Richard Ayres, Willem Jeths, and Wim Henderickx. In 2016 I received a Bachelor of Music in composition and interdisciplinary arts from Northwestern University under the guidance of Jay Alan Yim and Hans Thomalla. In 2014 I spent a semester studying visual cultures and composition with Patricia Alessandrini at Goldsmiths College in London and in 2015 I returned to the U.K. to conduct historical musicology research at the British Library, National Archives, and London Metropolitan Archives.
