December 23, 2016 - Deep Field listed as among the "best" Bay Area performances in 2016!
Deep Field, the new solo dance by Katie Faulkner for which I composed the score and sound design, was just listed as among the "Bay Area dance at its best in 2016" by the San Francisco Chronicle. Describing Faulkner's choreography as "emotionally drenched [and] technically astute," Allan Ulrich included this new solo in the paper's year-end highlights of Bay Area performance. I'm incredibly proud to have collaborated on this lovely project!
