It’s Not A Loop, It’s A Spiral: Fragments of Letters I Wrote This Year

I wrote about a lot of things, about collaborations with Lucio Capece and Christine Tavolacci and how music is about people for me, working together, being together. But also, I wrote about the days and days going by, impermanence, isolation and all the little things. Thank you Nate Wooley and Jennie Gottschalk for asking me to contribute to SA27 and thank you to Juho Laitinen for the inspiration to write this year and for always writing me back so beautifully.
