What sparked your interest in toy piano?
The sound. It sounds like an electronic instrument. Also, when I was fresh out of grad school, I wanted a series of pieces I could perform myself in any performance venue, so I wrote these toy piano sonatas, and I ever since I regularly write for toy piano.

 

What do you hope to achieve artistically or educationally from your participation in the festival?
Honestly, I’m looking for more exposure, and to meet more performers. I’m also hoping to escape the New England winter for a while. It would also be nice for me to reconnect with some of my old Bonk friends who still live in the greater Tampa area.
