In March 2020, I began a visual and sonic collaboration with violinist Clara Lyon and cellist Hannah Collins that would sustain us over many months of quarantine. In response to a photo of a collage I texted to them late one night, the musicians sent me a spontaneous recording of a ukulele and a melodious whistle.
Only 42 seconds in length, the image and sound together came to be known as Guida, Italian for “guide.” Guida marked the beginning of an alliance that routed us through the isolation of the time. The daily exchange of image and sound evolved into an inspired new body of works.
