My performance involves the manipulation of our temporal experience using a framework of dynamic relationships. I am fascinated by the relationships inherent when things and environments are set into motion causing sound as well as the processes by which these resonances are defined by people and related to others as experience. The title “Black Spirituals” is borrowed from a found cassette documenting a lecture given by Bernice Reagon on the roots music of American Black Slaves. I believe that these stories are a form of resonance that tell of rich relationships to ones surroundings, memories, profound feelings and dreams. I resonate with these stories and am attracted to the experiences that inspire human expression. Over the years I have developed a musical palette attuned to exploring notions of resonant relationships.
