With New Music, I am able to take risks, to present works where the ink is still wet, and to showcase the diversity of talents and artistic styles that are happening now. In addition, I’m able to work with other innovative artists to create location- or personnel-specific pieces, utilizing the specific strengths and features of an ensemble or organization. New Music for me means tapping into the most innovative artistic streams, working collaboratively with composers, and bringing to life the music that future organizations will consider canonical.
