Thanks to support from New Music USA, Sarah Frisof, Hannah Collins, Ingrid Stölzel and I spent three days at the Lansing Correctional Facility this May. We worked with inmates on engaging their creativity, composing new music, and refining their own compositions. Daniel Pesca contributed a brilliant piece remotely. I continue to be humbled and inspired by this time, and struggle to encapsulate in words how this project changed me. Luckily, Sarah and Hannah have provided some eloquent prose.
I am happy that our project is featured on the NM USA website.
