I’m very excited to be traveling to Vancouver tomorrow to work with the amazing musicians of Tiresias Duo. They are performing a concert called ‘National InQueeries’ (great title!) on Tuesday night, presented by Music on Main. They asked four queer composers, including myself, to reflect on our queer ‘heritage’ or inspirations as we composed a new work.
The impeccable and irresistible Mark McGregor and Rachel Iwaasa are doing incredible things with my new piece ‘Stir’, and I’m really looking forward to working with them in person. The work has many open elements for the performers to decide, in the hopes of including them in the creative process and giving them some authorship over the piece.
