Aqua Nocturne No.167

On July 16th, 2015 I was a guest performer for Speaking Tributaries' (Ana Labastida, Sadie Harmon, Jesus Landin-Torrez III) "Aqua Nocturne No.167". "This score was developed using researched histories of the Hetch Hetchy Reservoir and cartographic renderings of the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta." I prepared for the performance with site-specific viola practices at Lion's Creek in Oakland, and immersed in the Pacific Ocean at Stinson Beach. The water, and its different movements, taught me new ways of playing which were incorporated into the piece.
