2 April 2011, was the premiere of my first multimedia show, 3 Vignettes of Job. This show was partly funded by CU Boulder's ATLAS fellowship, of which I am the first recipient, and through an artist residency with the Kimmel Harding Nelson Center for the Arts. The initial production of this large-scale composition included 2 chamber ensembles, 1 open ensemble, actors, narrators, live electronics, fixed media audio, video, an artistic collaboration with visual artist Kym Finkle, a complex lighting design, and a jack-of-all-trades dancer/singer/actor for the role of Job, which was executed perfectly by Garrett Gene Smith. My deepest gratitude is extended to everyone who was a part of this extremely ambitious project, including my composition teacher at that time John Drumheller.
