I arrived in Berlin a week ago to start my 5-month residency at the American Academy in Berlin. I’ll be giving a presentation here on the 26th to discuss my work and give a short performance with ruby, my newest instrument.

I’m incredibly humbled and grateful to receive an Artists Grant from the Foundation for Contemporary Arts. FCA was founded by John Cage, Jasper Johns and Robert Rauschenberg, so it’s a really special honor to be part of this legacy.
