I’m interested in the intersection between music and religion, ethics, trauma, and social conditioning. I think there is an interesting, if not vital, question about the ethics surrounding how music has been and is being used in the art of manipulation. I’m deeply invested in how sound has been used to influence people. I want to study music in religion, in particular, how sounds are used to carry tradition and devotion and to create feeling. I’m fascinated by the untold stories carried through sound and how we understand those sounds in spite of them. How is music used to promote exclusivity? How does music itself become exclusive? There’s seemingly no end to the amount of people that have been conditioned by religious sound. I’m attentive to what that music means to those whom have been rejected by the status quo.
