Music

I had several intense years of music-making and composing and then it all came to a screeching halt. After a couple falst starts I'm getting back at it, and the music is starting to get out there.

Below is a selective works list. Some of the recent work was composed for the Vox Novus 15 Minutes of Fame project, where concerts are formed around fifteen 1-minute compositions writtens specially for the performers. I've embedded or linked to performances that have recordings available online.
