New works composed at Kimmel Harding Center for the Arts
I was lucky to be selected for a residency at the http://www.khncenterforthearts.org/ in January 2016, where I composed two new pieces: "Time is" for SSA choir and piano for Colburn Concert Choir and "Skyward" for Qudi, Sheng, Guzeng and Erhu for Little Giant Chinese Chamber Orchestra (both works are listed here in "Works" tab). I also edited my piece for bass violin and koto "Surface Tension" and created a new version for viola and bass koto.
