Recordings & Compositions


Le Festin from the movie "Ratatouille"

I made this recording for my recording class at Stanford. I arranged it for piano, guitar, drums, violin, solo vocal, and backup vocals. I sang the solo and some of the backup vocals, and the other parts were performed by my classmates.
After being on soundcloud for about 5 years, it now has 238k plays and over 4000 likes!

American Tune

This is a cover of American Tune by Paul Simon for two female voices. I was inspired by both the original Paul Simon version, as well as the Simon & Garfunkel duet version, and the guitar part of the Eva Cassidy cover.

This is a cover of Hallelujah by Leonard Cohen, arranged for acapella women's voices. Recording and mixing for acapella was a completely different challenge compared to instruments, and it was a lot of fun! This performance was my acapella choir at Stanford with 3 different soloists.

Do Not Stand at my Grave and Weep

A setting of the poem Immortality by Clare Harner for 3 part women's choir.
I wrote this in high school as an exercise in vocal writing. I picked several poems and set them to music, but this one spoke to me in a different way and I ended up extending it from a single line melody into the full setting for 3 voices.
This recording was made at Festival Europa Cantat 2012 in Turin, Italy, where a German women's choir LaCappella performed it as part of their set list.

Waltz for 12 Violas

I wrote this piece for a talent show that my youth orchestra was putting on. Everyone was encouraged to participate, and since our group of violas were close friends, and there isn't much existing viola repertoire, I decided to write this piece for us to play.
