Fear Through the Lens of Transition
Fear Through the Lens of Transition was inspired by a six-month stay in Kraków, Poland. This was the first time I had left the country, and the combination of language barriers and new environments presented a frightening, yet exciting, challenge. While I adapted to the cultural shift I experienced, I was provided the opportunity to compose and perform a piece with another student at the Academy of Music in Kraków. This piece characterizes the different challenges I faced as a student in a foreign country as well as the joy of music-making with new colleagues.
