Intimate Strangers, a collaborative album with Sara Serpa, premiered in 2018 as an interdisciplinary musical performance based on A Stranger’s Pose. In a combination of music, spoken word, image and field recordings collected during my travels, Intimate Strangers explores such themes as of movement, home, grief, absence and desire.
