SHE WHO IS ALIVE

... my favorite was "She Who is Alive." Erling Wold's music was lush, beautifully melodic yet creepy, the story quite relevant in these times where facism is increasingly rearing its deranged and ugly head. - Kathryne Cassis

The second half of the program was the most compelling ... a warlord of a futuristic world, who wants to eliminate the physical matter of human beings in order to eliminate pain and suffering, interrogates a dissident scientist. He is bent on executing her. The interrogation and its music are insistent, minimalist and the language abrupt and absurd. - Bachtrack

WHAT IT IS

This is what I'm currently working on - an adaptation of the book by Robert Harris (the Oakland author). A scene was performed by West Edge Opera as part of their Snapshot festival, and another few bits by the San Francisco Composers Chamber Orchestra.
