about

When understanding fails, music consoles. There is always the chance that a dream revisits us, but there is also the impossibility of holding onto or recalling its details. These songs assemble emotions that live in disparate locations. They are pieces of dreams about queerness, memory, diaspora, history and love. Like an attempt to make sense of the residue of a dream, I hope that the imposition of a coherent narrative onto them is a necessary act but does not undermine their enigmatic qualities. These songs contain materials that help me to know who I am, all the while finding comfort in the places where knowing is not possible.
