A common depiction of trans people is a before and after narrative; similar stories of “being born in the wrong body”, then undergoing gender confirming treatments to reach the result of a finished identity. This might be true for some, but for most people gender is a lifelong journey. Transitioning Orchestra celebrates the ever-changing identity and is based on the artist’s ongoing transition, allowing time, curiosity, and playfulness into the transitioning process. The Orchestra consists of voice training, selfcare, laser treatment, surgeries, hormones, and conversations with peers. Together, the sounds become futuristic, fluid poetry.
