    New electronic work

    We had our last EQ session last week and what an inspiring 5 months it’s been! I’ve met such a great group of artists and learned so much about how to approach electronics in my compositional practice from Rose Bolton and the other participants. I hope this program continues on to keep building a foundation for women in electronics. Throughout the workshop, I’ve been composing a series of electronic pieces that are finally finished! This has been new territory for me, composing solely in this medium and it’s been an eye- opening process from start to finish.
