My Time in Finland

The trio flew to Finland last month for a brief tour with Verneri. I meant to write something about it before we went, but I've been so busy composing for an Icelandic TV show that I didn't get around to it. So here's a recap instead. First of all, I love Finland.

Duoism

In a way, music is all about relationships. It's about connecting with people in the moment, on stage and off. I've been very lucky to connect with some wonderful people over the years and the past couple of weeks have been no exception. From September 23rd-27th I took part in a Women Composers Workshop in...
