I am thrilled to be an inaugural artist-in-residence at the Longy School of Music at Bard College. I am developing a new work there over the next two years based on H.D.’s epic poem Helen in Egypt with the mentorship of composer Amy Beth Kirsten. It’s been a thrill to get to know the amazing faculty and student composers at Longy, and to work alongside my fellow artists-in-residence Bahar Royaee and Sam Wolf. On the 28th, we shared our works-in-progress with a guest artist, stage and movement director Elizabeth Margolius, in the first of four Claiming Space events that will take place during the residency.
