when I am alone was commissioned by the Pulitzer Arts Foundation in Saint Louis for the reopening of the redesign of their building in 2015. It was originally written for ‘mumbling choir’ and was performed by hundreds of singers from the Saint Louis Symphony Chorus, the Webster University Chorus, and the Saint Louis Children’s Choir.

The solo version of when I am alone, sung by Caroline Shaw, was adapted with the help of my frequent collaborator Jody Elff, specifically for use by the artist Suzanne Bocanegra in her installation Poorly Watched Girls at the Fabric Workshop and Museum in Philadelphia, in 2019
