somna m bulist composer, performer of original work.
Explorations involve tangible music and intangible sound projects where the harp is a pivotal presence.
The possibilities of sound as a generative force inspire my music making. I believe that sound has
transformative potential and can be used to effect change in consciousness and personal reality, influencing in turn the greater world that we inhabit.
To achieve this sound through musical composition and performance is the challenge.

Preparation for the concert performance with Ghost Ensemble:
Please take a moment or two to contemplate your relationship
with the large bodies of water on this planet, the oceans,
seas, lakes, rivers. Imagine that this body of water is
a living being. What would you say?
Join us for the sounding of our responses
in my continuing dialogue with the sea.
