Composition Residency {August 2007}                                  Tufts in Talloires | Talloires, France

This 10-day chamber music program focused on editing, rehearsing, and conducting  string sextet, composed specifically for this ensemble: a multigenerational group of strangers with widely varying levels of expertise. The outcome was a largely improvisational work with directed form, motifs, and expression markings, with a primary intention to spark collaborative dialogue and creative/personal/professional connections within the ensemble.
