Alyssa’s music draws inspiration from folklore and the broader realm of art (visual art, written and spoken word, film, movement, sound art and more) as an approach on experiencing the affect and subterranean power present within the fabric of music and how it tints the spectrum of human emotions.
Her music has been performed by several New York based ensembles and soloists.
