Sarah on NPR’s Studio 360

NPR’s Studio 360 interviewed Sarah about her new choral piece, You Must Feel with Certainty, for a feature they did on Swedish female abstract painter Hilma af Klint, the subject of the Guggenheim retrospective Hilma af Klint: Paintings for the Future. Sarah’s piece was commissioned by the Guggenheim Works & Process to celebrate the exhibit, and was premiered in the Guggenheim Rotunda by George Steel’s Vox Vocal Ensemble on December 16 and 17.

Sarah talks about how Hilma’s artwork directly inspired her music, and how she tried to tried to capture some of Hilma’s approach to creativity in her own. You can listen to the episode and interview here.
