I also redesigned her website. Take a look.


In Performance

It can’t all be experimentation. Sometimes you have to get out of the lab. I’m very happy to relate that music resulting from my recent collaboration with Alina Quu was used in a performance by Lindsey Kelley Dance. The event was a huge success. Sold out both nights.
