Primarily music performance & composition.
What do you hope to explore in your art during your time at Charlotte Street?
the group dynamic between the members of my group, the RoughTet.
In what ways do you utilize your space for your art practice?
I use the space for composing, practicing and rehearsing my group.
Walk us through a typical day in your studio…
I go in a little early to work on compositions and organize written music & set up my drum set if necessary. Then my group arrives and we rehearse/learn new pieces & practice improvisation.
What is the first piece of art you remember grabbing your attention? At what age? Why do you think it did?
God, I don’t know…maybe my mother’s records and also I was attracted to visual art at an early age …2 to 3 years old.
Whose studio do you find yourself wandering to in your downtime?
I regularly walk through the various studios checking out the work.
What are your plans post-residency?
Hopefully to find a space where my group & I can work, to continue the growth of my group’s music.
