Resilience is a piece for laptop orchestra and one VR performer. A prequel to the longer, individual VR experience 12 Sentiments for VR (an aesthetic exploration of the emotional life cycle of a plant), it follows a group of seedlings as they search for a new home. The piece is an exploration of resilience through traumatic life events, finding peace and joy in small moments, and reconnecting with the ability to grow.
Resilience was performed at the 2019: A SLOrk Odyssey concert at Bing Concert Hall, Stanford University, June 2019.
