Music

I am primarily a singer, vocal percussionist, and music technologist. I enjoy working with vocals or computers (often both!) to create fun and engaging pieces of music.

Some music groups I've performed with:

"Loops"



Loops - CCRMA Stage, January 2020

A live looping beatboxing and vocal performance, accompanied by visuals. Performed ArtX Stanford's New Dimensionality Showcase. Enjoy!

"Close to Home"



Close To Home - Stanford Counterpoint, September 2019

Stanford Counterpoint recently released our 14th studio album "Close To Home." I sing and beatbox on the album and did a lot of the arranging and recording/production for the project. Our music video for "God is a Woman" has been nominated for an A Cappella Video Award (AVA), and "Light of a Clear Blue Morning" was selected as one of RARB's "Tracks of the Year" and was nominated fora CARA award. You can listen to the album on all streaming services, enjoy!

"Exhale"




Exhale - Composition for Ambisonics, October 2019

Exhale is a all-vocal piece by Elena Georgieva and Jeremy Raven that explores the range and power of the human voice. The piece features a variety of vocal sounds and textures, all performed by Georgieva and Raven and recorded in the CCRMA studio. The piece was composed to be played in 3rd order ambisonics format ("3D Sound"). This is a binaural render, simplified for headphones!

"Beatboxing Machine"



Beatboxing Machine - Bing Concert Hall, June 2018

"Beatboxing Machine" is a piece I composed for the Stanford Laptop Orchestra(SLOrk). In the piece, human vocal percussion sounds are reimagined as a laptop orchestra drum machine. Performed by 12 humans, 12 machines, and 12 subwoofers, this piece is beatboxing like you've never quite heard before. I am a vocal percussionist and personally recorded all the percussion sounds you hear in this piece.

A Cappella Ambisonics

Stanford CCRMA Stage, December 2017

My final project for a class on computer-generated sound. I musically arranged and recorded the Beatles' song "Strawberry Fields Forever" and mixed it in 4 channels using ChucK. This project celebrates the 50th anniversary of the song, originally released in 1967.
