Music / Sound, Performance, Sculpture / Installation, Visual / Media

I am drawn to the power of storytelling through music. My personal mission revolves around using music to speak for those who have been silenced, and for those who are underrepresented. This work serves not only to bring composers' voices to life, but it helps me make a genuine cultural connection with my audience.

Artist's Statement

“The Voice of Silence” is an immersive audio-visual installation featuring Federico Mompou’s Musica Callada performed by pianist Elizabeth G. Hill. The primary focus through this installation is to create a musical space that draws a community together as listeners, encouraging moments for peace and personal reflection.  The Musica Callada collection is comprised of 28 short pieces, composed between 1959 and 1974. The entire recording is approximately 60 minutes, though viewers are encouraged to come and go as they please, and take in the art at their own pace. This project was made possible in part through the generous support of the Maryland State Arts Council Creativity Grant.
