  • haunted house || bibliography

    Bibliographies are proof that work is never done alone, even if the work is done “alone.” I love taking this academic concept and applying it to my songwriting and production. As always, this bibliography is not comprehensive, but merely what/who I remember thinking about when I wrote and produced “haunted house.” bibliography (“haunted house”)

  • i am a haunted house

    Finding words to talk about music I’m releasing can be, at times, very tricky. I’ve always used songwriting as a way to process confusing events or feelings. (ok! I’ll be real, all the emotions are confusing to me. Why do we have emotions? {rhetorical— please don’t tell me} and why do they effect me? How dare […]

  • hypervigilance

    I had just moved to a new city in the middle of the pandemic. It is in moments of deep change when it feels like I’ve actually never really noticed what it feels like to be alive. Hypervigilance. But it goes beyond that, it’s not just that I feel like I’m experiencing life for the […]

You notice your breath, but is it too shallow? too heavy? is the way you’ve always breathed? are you getting enough oxygen? is there carbon monoxide in the air? […]

  • “my little brother” | bibliography

    There are so many things I despise about academia (you probably know this about me if we have spoken for 5 minutes), BUT one thing I love is a good bibliography. Bibliographies are the foundation of the writing process. I love to read them as I research, and I love to write them because it […]

  • my little brother || lyrics

    I distinctly remember the impossibility I felt as a child that I/we would ever be anything other than kids. It seemed impossible that my siblings would have their own family, or that our priorities would shift, or that we would have real responsibilities. That we would get jobs. Or not live in the same house. […]

  • studio diary #1: “my little brother”

    i feel like whenever I hear a Classical Music piece that is about death, the piece always ends with long, slow upwards scale. it kind of illustrates our ideas of death and afterlife. how does a body leave the earth? or where do we go when we die? up, right? towards the heaven? our “spirits” […]
