Parallels by is a new piece by composer, vocalist, and clarinetist Holland Andrews in which they sonically explore a turning point in their life where they began to be visited by their ancestors in the form of spirit, and the parallels they share with their late mother who also had visions. Andrews explores the theme of experiencing spiritual phenomena and trying to discern what is real despite what you are experiencing, which is visceral, powerful, and simultaneously, bewildering.

Andrews has developed an improvised score for solo voice, clarinet, samples, and electronics.


Holland Andrews is a vocalist, composer, music producer, and performer whose work focuses on the abstraction of operatic and extended-technique voice to build cathartic and dissonant soundscapes. Andrews arranges music for voice, clarinet, and electronics, frequently highlighting themes surrounding vulnerability and healing. Andrews harnesses these instruments’ innate qualities of power and elegance to serve as a cohesive vessel for these themes. As a vocalist, their influences stem from a dynamic range including contemporary opera, american experimentalism, musical theater, and jazz, while also cultivating their unique vocal style which integrates these influences with language disintegration, vocal distortion, and environmental ambiance. Andrews previously performed solo music under the stage name Like a Villain. Holland Andrews is currently based in Brooklyn, New York. Andrews is a FCA Artist Fellow (2023) and USA Artist Fellow (2024).
