Speak (2019), written for percussionist Conner Darling, is a piece about communication and wanting to be heard. Based on the Morse code pattern for "Conner," the performer "speaks" his name throughout the work in many different variations and connotations— whispering, conversing, shouting. Speak asks of the audience: am I being heard? Am I helping others speak their truth?
