Participating in this exciting event for the first time, I presented a new piece titled Satowa. This edition of Short & Sweet had a theme of "strange pairings", so for the very first time I decided to work with a music composition written by my mother. It might not be so strange to audience members but it was a stimulating challenge for me, especially working with traditional music. In the end, I believe the collaboration brought an interesting result and I feel that it opened a new door for me. I would like to thank everyone who came out to the show, and Andrew and Sasha for inviting me to participate!
