11/4/17 – Premiered a new chamber piece tonight at our studio for a great group of creative friends. Inspired by Jimin Han‘s novel A Small Revolution – the piano, oboe and cello sing the interplay between the 3 characters in Jimin’s intense tale. Scored breaths by the musicians punctuate the tension between past and present, fear and love. A nice musical change for me!
