About the Work: “Outchea” was one of the first pieces I ever wrote. I was maybe 21 or so. Part of the reason I chose the title was because I thought it would be funny to hear my older white professors pronounce it. Even though I wrote this early in my artistic practice, before I would have even called it an artistic practice, looking back now I think a lot of the elements of my compositional voice were already apparent.
