While missing face-to-face connections, however, the flutist has found different ways to reach out to other artists. She recently worked with actor/writer/artist Chris Caswell on Hansel's project "And Gretel Hansel"; Caswell created rearranged visual images from the fairytale, which Julien set to music.
Julien recently discussed this project, and other ways in which she's connecting creatively with friends and neighbors, on North Country Public Radio. Listen to the full story on NCPR. (transcript available)
