Song that inspires you
  • DRMNGNOW — Indigenous Land. It bumps hard and is vital!
Your go-to track when you have a creative block
  • JFDR — White Sun. The song is built on a 5 chord pattern and feels like a circular infinity.
Best track to de-stress to
  • Bing & Ruth — Starwood Choker. It sounds like an approaching tropical thunderstorm which reminds me of home.

Favourite track to work to
  • Tibetan Dance — Ryuichi Sakamoto. It is the best painting song!
If your work was a music genre, what would it be?
  • Singer-songwriter because it's often solitary and introspective.
If there is, what is the relationship or importance of music to your craft and does it have an impact on your work?
  • Music is part of my practise and is essential to all aspects of my craft. In my life, it has been a tool for recording information, healing trauma, spirituality, sometimes hedonism, and creating community.
What's your favourite nuraphone feature?
  • The complete immersion. My last project, Willow Beats was about world building with sound, space, and words. The nuraphones are the perfect accomplice!
