Program Notes
"blood...all over my hands" for Pierrot ensemble with voice and percussion is collage of expressions of madness throughout poetry, music, literature, and theater, presented as a path with dangerous curves. This piece was written during the first half of 2023, in which over 540 anti-Queer bills were introduced in state legislatures across the US, and, as such, is an expression of personal as well as political rage.
