I’m excited to announce my debut album, Borne by a Wind, set to be released February 12th on New Focus Recordings.
It opens with Red Wind (2017), a collaboration with experimentalist poet and National Book Award-winner Nathaniel Mackey that features Mackey as narrator in excerpts from his poetry collection Blue Fasa alongside the Deviant Septet and soprano Mellissa Hughes. Earlier works on the album include There is no sleep so deep (2016), recorded by pianist Conrad Tao; LUNE (2015), performed by violinist Lilit Hartunian; and Astrolabe(2014), recorded by the Da Capo Chamber Players.
The album is available for pre-order on bandcamp here:
Recorded and mixed by Rick Nelson at Duke University with support from the Department of Music, the Office of the Vice Provost for the Arts, and Duke Performances. Mastered by Ryan Streber at Oktaven Audio and featuring an incredible album design by Jessica Slaven.
