Artifacts (2011–12) is a piece composed for the Twentieth Anniversary Season of the Left Coast Chamber Ensemble, and was premiered in October 2012. The work was commissioned by Meet the Composer/Commissioning Music USA. It is a piece that fuses abstractions in two different art mediums; my music with the video art of painter Frances McCormack, through the means of an original story by writer Susan Moon. The music initiate the flow of the video images, and the narrator responds in kind as a response to these actions. The story begins in a place of clarity and reason and history, and gradually moves toward a place of intimacy and personal memory.
