Through her interdisciplinary works, Sirintip aims to uncover and create connections, arriving at moments of greater understanding. Commissioned pieces include “Common Ground” composed for International Day of Peace for Songs 4 World Peace; music for a large, genre-defiant ensemble of unconventional instrumentation for the Royal Academy of Music in Sweden; orchestral arrangements of “I’ll Be There” for Swedish Radio Symphony
Orchestra and “A Case of You” for Malmo Symphony Orchestra; and interpretations for both Nobel Chemistry Prize and Nobel Prize for Peace. Her commercial credits include vocal performances and studio recordings for the Alzheimer’s Association and AT&T Discovery District. Her film score for Arthur Conan Doyle’s 1925 feature “Lost World” premiered On Demand and at 19 Alamo Drafthouse Movie Theaters across the U.S. In addition to touring Carbon in what she hopes to be a sustainable, minimally harmful way, Sirintip will focus her next couple of years on large-scale installation pieces and narrative compositions that explore the carbon clock, and microorganisms, respectively, and further engaging scientists directly in her artistic output.
