I had the pleasure of attending ‘Art Song Lab’, an Art Song program run in conjunction with the Vancouver Canadian Music Centre. Composers were paired up with poets, and set about working on a piece together. I was paired with the incredible Canadian poet/filmmaker Kagan Goh. Kagan and I worked on an intimate piece of loss and longing, based on the life of a Japanese-Canadian in the 1950s. I’m extremely pleased with the incredible performance that came out of the program. Take a listen!
