An Incendiary Discussion
Op. 14 (2021)
In my final year of doctoral work, I recorded my debut cello CD, "Anti-compass" for the Sheva Collection label. To fund that endeavor I launched a crowdfunding campaign through Kickstarter, with one of the higher pledge tiers offering an original piece dedicated and/or written for the donor. My wonderful brother helped fund my project a great deal, and I wrote this piece for him as his reward.
He and I share a love for the work of psychologist Jordan B. Peterson. Dr. Peterson has given talks all around the world, including one at Ryerson University, for which the video on YouTube is titled "An Incendiary Discussion."
