backstage 

hi friend! my name is Ariel Sol ("Ari") Bertulfo Schwartz, and I am a composer, harpist, and multimedia artist based in Bloomington, IN. iI'm currently an undergraduate at the Jacobs School of Music, where I study composition, harp, ethnomusicology, math, and entrepreneurship. I'm a huge believer in multidisciplinary collaboration, civic-minded artistry, and the decolonialism of classical canon. I also love tennis and baking! My work often focuses on virtual/digital reality, identity, and humanity,  particularly through the lens of my own minority as a gay Jewish-Filipino American.
