Low voice choir
Watch Me (2023) was written for the University of Michigan Men’s Glee Club, Mark Stover, conductor. The piece explores the difference in intensity between the verbs “see,” “look,” and “watch,” juxtaposing the individual perspective (“me”) with that of the collective (“us”). Throughout Watch Me, the choir demands attention, asks for consideration, and defies expectation through dynamic, registral, and rhythmic shifts. To what and whom do we dedicate our attention and with what level of intentionality? Is the attention we give one another curious? Severe? Tender? Many thanks to the University of Michigan Men’s Glee Club for bringing Watch Me to life.
