Treephonia: Live Composers for 2022

As a tree lover since I was a kid, I’m very excited to be selected as one of the six composers in the Treephonia: Live Composers 2022! I will be writing a piece for a mixed octet inspired by trees and performed by Treephonia Ensemble in this September!
Stay tuned for the sound of trees!
