my current question:

how can composers collaborate on the smallest scale?


In addition to composing music favoring minimalist techniques, Rain (they/them) is currently studying psychology, linguistics, cognitive science, and leadership, all of which influence the music they write. Rain’s biggest musical focus is in asking (and sometimes answering) questions about music such as “How do I make a single note groove?” (with saxophones!) and “How many keyboards can I fit on a stage?” (at least 10). They are also interested in studying music perception and production from a practical perspective, employing mediums such as graphic or aleatoric scores to enable performers to shape each piece and performance to themselves.


Rain began taking piano lessons before the age of four and has since picked up over a dozen instruments of classical, foreign, and casual traditions. They have performed with jazz, wind, orchestral, marching, and foreign ensembles, all of which have served to cultivate a passion for composition, which has manifested in a variety of small ensemble and solo pieces. Rain’s music has been performed by the Colorado Wind Ensemble as well as HOCKET, ~Nois, Duo Cortona, and others at University of Colorado Boulder’s College of Music SoundWorks New Music concerts and has been featured on the KGNU Present Edge radio program. Their piece seeds to plant (in an unmarked grave) was selected for performance in the 2023 Nief-Norf Summer Festival International Call-For-Scores. Rain has also collaborated with filmmakers and audiovisual artists in facilitating and creating multimedia projects.

Outside of music, Rain is currently working as a Registered Behavior Technician and enjoys playing card games, hanging out with friends, and collecting stickers.
