April 6 – I am excited to announce that I have been selected for the SEED 2021 Virtual Composition Academy! This opportunity allows participants to learn more about the Sheng and Shō through a six month journey with international masters such as Wu Wei, Mayumi Miyata, and Remi Miura.
Since completing my concerto “Radiant Light” for Sheng and orchestra, I have wanted to return to writing for Sheng and this opportunity will allow me to work closely with Mr. Wu Wei – who is an internationally renowned master of the instrument – on a new solo work to be recorded in the Fall of 2021.
The SEED 2021 academy is made possible by JunYi Chow and Chatori Shimizu. During a time when travelling is made difficult, it is exciting to be part of an international cohort of composers coming from Sydney, San Francisco, Washington D.C. and London that will be learning about these instruments together. Stay tuned for details on the piece!
