It's 60 minutes of dense, swirling, droning cassettes, and i'm truly, deeply proud of it. It's being released in a limited edition of 250. More details can be found here.

Rediscovery


While pouring through my archives today I came across a piece I wrote in 2001 for the choreographer Courtney Krantz. Pleasantly surprised by my early output (it is a very stark 17 minute piece consisting of some wistful melodies on the bowed marimba, and some field recordings of walking and water) I've decided to share it on my last.fm…

Apparitions - Avant Premiere


Thank you to everyone who came out to the World Premiere of Apparitions of The Four Pillars. It was an amazing and meditative night.

The avant-premiere,…

Voices + Sine Waves


On October 6th, Avant Media will be releasing my first solo record, Voices + Sine Waves.

This album represents key moments from my last 10 years of work. From one of my earliest pieces, Julia, to my most recent, Shiver, these works run the gamut from quiet and serene to intense and visceral with a healthy dose…

It was an odd week to say the least.

I'm not entirely sure what happened, but somehow I went from creating new work on a strange baroque organ to cooking for 20 for a week and getting a pretty awesome tan.

It's not that I didn't enjoy my time in Italy, I definitely did. It ended up almost being a proper vacation - something I…
