To start with, not all my pieces are visual pieces. So, what I love about having stretched my vocabulary like this is that I can sort of have an idea for a piece, and there’s less limitations of how I can get it to an audience. Maybe a certain idea needs a cello solo or string quartet or another idea could use — might need five screens and electronics and 3D film.1 So, it really depends on the idea, first and foremost as an idea, and then I start thinking how am I going to translate this to an audience.2 So, having the visual and the sort of staging in my toolbox, it allows me to take on more ideas that I couldn’t tackle before, adding these layers to my work.
