about

My album "Mother" is about mother. It’s about my attachment to her, how she shaped perception of my feelings as elemental as joy and sorrow, my relationship to femininity, our separation, and finding answers to questions she left. It’s about understanding motherhood through birthing my own music. “Chaos” is an empathic dialogue between the unborn child and mother. “Blackbird” is a conversation between mother and I, on how we dealt with our sadness. “Engagement” is not the Oedipus song. “Migrant” is why one separates, “Orcas” is what one does in solitude of separation. “Promise Me” is the sorted me, rewriting how mother would handle separation. “Oceanman” is an impressionist narrative by mother, of a blurry father. “Joy and Sorrow” is what mother meant to me.


I wrote “Mother” with voice, electronics, chamber instruments like strings and harp, found sounds like I were painting a large, cinematic musical landscape.
