The creation of a new piece is an unpredictable journey. The process
for discovering each piece is always different and unique in its own
Through this project, I would like to share this exhilarating journey with you, inviting you to step inside my musical world as this new piece commissioned by Christophe Asselineau unfolds. You will witness the work as it evolves from my initial musical thoughts into to a full realized piece of music.
There's a story in a collection of Zen writings called True Friends: The story tells of two friends; one is a skillful harpist, the other a skillful listener. They compliment each other perfectly, and one cannot seem to exist without the other. And so it goes with this project–you play an equal part as the skillful listeners, my good friends.
With this offer you will also receive a signed score page from Maria, your name listed as a participant on the final page of the published score and individual parts, video of the first rehearsal and insightful discussions with the musicians performing this work.
You can also email me with questions about my creative process and this piece; I am picking a selection of questions to answer in the form of streaming video segments that are made available to all participants.
I look forward to sharing this unique journey with all of you!
