Projects and Collaborations
Nehnu, Mowja, born of droplets
"Nehnu, Mowja, born of droplets" is a dance work collaboratively created by Palestinian American choreographer Leila Awadallah and students at Winona State University in Winona, MN at her guest artist residency in Fall of 2021. I was a guest composer in the project and participated in the creative process in person during Awadallah's residency, using underwater field recordings captured with a hydrophone in local waterways woven throughout the electroacoustic piece created in Ableton Live. "Nehnu, Mowja, born of droplets" translates from Arabic to English as "We, a Wave, born of droplets."
