Catch a first look at this new piece as part of HERE Arts Center’s Culturemart. I'm making music and sounds for Smoke & Mirrors Collaborative on their ambitious immersive performance work exploring modern Millennial identity in response to incarceration and #BlackLivesMatter. It's part of a jam packed festival of new work that includes a work-in-progress/reading from the singular Taylor Mac at 2pm on the 25th.
