So grateful for an entire week with my amazing family 💙

Working on a new piece for @raleighcivicorchestras and was thinking it would be like Buster Keaton attacking the Death Star and doing the Macarena with narration by the SNL announcer but I guess I'll just start over
Russell Parker Stormborn of House Mou, First of His Name, Chubby Buddha of West Roxbury, Breaker of Hearts and Son of @honkumou and @twinkie686

Through the night, for 8 hours, we hammered out thousands of the most transcendent quarter notes ever written with Max Richter. In the afternoon I watched the Aizuri Quartet perform my piece LIFT for the finals of M-Prize and my heart almost burst. That was right before they won $100,000. Now on a plane to Singapore where I'm going to play some beautiful chamber music with Nico Muhly and start working on my first symphonic work. #goodday
Bawling!!! The 4 incredible women of the @aizuriquartet just made history!!! The creativity, integrity, beauty and the power that they generate on stage moves me to my core and leaves absolutely no room for any bullshit. Ayane, Miho, Ariana, and Karen, you are my heroes!!!!

Cello party at the Kennedy Center! Feat. @claricejensen's logic-defying transcription of Julius Eastman's The Holy Presence of Joan d'Arc for 10 celli
Finishing up a solo cello piece for gentleman cellist Gabriel Cabezas. Spoiler slash nerd alert: simple (one string down) scordatura that can imitate octave AND phaser pedals but like um integrity and stuff. Stay...TUNED
