Pastorale (2022) and HOWL (2023) are two pieces which explore the topics of animal representation and metaphor in music. Both quote the second movement of Vivaldi’s Spring, which features a violist imitating a dog barking. HOWL was composed for RE: Duo and in partial fulfillment of a doctorate in composition.
