In the spring of 2013 I was honoured to be able to work with Dr. Daniel Brophy on his doctoral thesis. The project he created, called 30 Immolated; 16 Returned, was a musical interpretation of the Marquis De Sade‘s famous work: The 120 Days of Sodom, as well as its infamous film adaptation, Salo. For those of you curious about the project, you can find the entire doctoral thesis (as well as performance clips of the project) here. As a member of 30;16 I was named an Artist in Residence at the University of Alberta for the Spring 2013 term. During this period, I gave a presentation at the university in our research studio on how to retain artistic individuality in multiple musical projects.
