Breathwork was performed in conjunction with the Alchemy exhibition at BRIC House Gallery on 25 July, 2018. The development of the accompanying soundscape was supported by my artist residency at Alfred University’s Institute for Electronic Arts in July 2018.

This performance utilizes language, movement, and live/recorded sound to explore different kinds of power. Here I am exploring dualities of entanglement and release, and I approach sound as a force within space to alchemize hardness into softness, giving particular resonance to this transformation in this moment of ongoing societal discord.
