Honored to be a part of the Thailand International Composition Festival for the fifth year, alongside many of my longstanding inspirations like Augusta Read Thomas and Bernard Rands, and colleague, TICF founder/artistic director Narong Prangcharoen, as well as many others. The TICF/UMKC exchange has now reached 10 Thai and 12 UMKC composition students. Thank you Mahidol University for hosting all of us again this year. It was a special treat to have both E: Tip and Flone performed as a part of this year’s festival featuring Alvin Wong and Luisa Sello. Looking forward to more music sharing in the future!
