Nora served as co-librettist and executive music producer for the Carnegie Hall world premiere of Langston Hughes’ Ask Your Mama, a multimedia collaboration between Jessye Norman, Laura Karpman and The Roots. This live interdisciplinary experience was a natural outgrowth of her work as a co-founder of VisionIntoArt, the interdisciplinary new music group that fosters “flamboyant, confounding and enticing collaborations among choreographers, visual artists, actors and composers” (NYTimes). Recently, she produced songs for the English band Opus X and tenor Michael Slattery. She was a fellow at the 2012 Sundance Composers Documentary Lab, 2005 ASCAP Film Scoring Workshop, and the 2004 UCROSS Foundation.
