The following is from a guest blog post I made for the Santa Barbara Museum of Art‘s blog. I had the wonderful experience of curating a “sonic installation” in their galleries this last Sunday, in collaboration with the Music Academy of the West.

Last Sunday I had the unique opportunity to curate an event at the Santa Barbara Museum of Art as part of my residency at Music Academy of the West. I chose to create a “sonic installation”, placing chamber music in various galleries and organizing it in such a way as to have 3 simultaneous performances going at any given point in time during the 2-hour event. It was a rather ambitious project but came off well, in no small part due to the inspiring music making of the 28 MAW Fellows that performed. There were several decisions that I made in the course of putting the installation together that were designed to be thought provoking beyond that which is already in the music.
