RefractionsRefractions is a new album-length work for processed music box, string quartet, and electric guitar that combines ethereal ambient electronics with contemplative acoustic timbres.

The music box, electric guitar, and string quartet all have rich histories and connotations that span continents and inform how we hear them. Refractions is a musical space in which these sonic lineages can meet and speak a harmonious hybrid musical language.

I’m thrilled to collaborate on Refractions with the Isaura String Quartet, guitarist Jeremy Kerner, and Populist Records. Refractions will be released as an album by Populist Records in 2017, featuring artwork by Bay Area artist Joyce Nojima.
