Home for Solo Flute

"Home" was inspired by two concepts. The first, was a physical thing. What felt like "home" on my instrument? What was comfortable, fun, easy, and came naturally? The second was a conceptual thing - what is "home" to a queer body? What makes the body feel like it's at home with itself? Does "home" take on different meanings within a mixed-race body, an immigrant body, a multi-lingual body? Outside of self, can we find "home" within our families, our chosen families, our communities? This piece is for anyone who has struggled to find “home” for themselves.

"Home" premiered at the National Flute Association Convention on August 14th, 2021.
