"I believe in creating music without the limitations of pre-determined specific genre or space, allowing each project to lead the sounds.
This practice has taken on the form of a multi-channel sound installation including a home-made instrument and sound sculptures swinging subtly from the ceiling. Another time it became a fashion film showcasing bright pink feminist costumes to the tune of a typewriter, clicking to sustained chords played by brass instruments.
Then there was the time where it put together that bass-heavy beat; sampling keys and banging doors to compliment an inmate’s story about life on death row.
Change is the world’s only constant. By welcoming change and not taking my own process too seriously, I strive to produce sincere pieces of art."
