Hi. My name is Shaya. I design user interfaces, take photos, and build communities.
I also enjoy creative and interdisciplinary thought. Here’s what I’ve been working on:
Lately, I’ve been writing about music and technology for Chamber Music Magazine. More about my writing projects here.
Portraits and the little details, mostly of people. More about my photography here.
Musochat is a monthly conversation about new music on Twitter that began in July 2015. New Music Box wrote about it, and SoundNotion recorded us discussing it on their podcast, as did The Portfolio Composer.
As a guest on ThisChoirNerd, a podcast by Markdavin Obenza, I discuss how to connect strangers with music, collaborating in the digital space, how unpaid work affects (or doesn’t affect) quality, tips on advertising a concert, and audience building. Mark is director of the Byrd Ensemble and producer for Scribe Records. (June 2017)
