stories/walk free (fixed media)

Categories: , Tags: , ,


This is a long slow moment, a term Tim Feeney introduced me to in January 2019. I didn’t realize that’s what I was writing until it was staring me in the face, but it’s an excruciating ten minutes from my MFA capstone, face the mirror, in which my character succumbs to her thoughts. I’ll be frank: the stories I use in this piece are entirely autobiographical. It’s not pretty.

However, I love stories/walk free because it was one of my first chances to play with ASMR-type sounds in a musical context and the first piece I made where I relied primarily on the voice for nearly all the musical material. I adore it. Actually, I’m working on a live version with some trumpet things, so keep a casual eye out for that.
