A quick look back into trying something new, where it has lead me, and how much I love musicals.

Ayehli Alexandra Gardner, (un)selfish object Baljinder Sekhon, and The Hinchinbrook Riffs Nigel Weslake are the latest compositions detailed in the database. Ayehli was written in the wake of the September 11 attacks and is the composer's attempt to transform tragedy into beauty. The Hinchinbrook Riffs is Westlake's second work for marimba and digital delay but uses a different approach to the writing than his first work. Sekhon's (un)selfish object relies on pitch tracking software to trigger sound files throughout the performance.
