"The world does not need more beautiful music. We are in excess of pretty, fluffy pieces. Conversely, the world does not need more ugly music. Surely the last 100 years of extensive experimentation has proven what works and what repeatedly fails to stimulate us on an intellectual, emotional, and aesthetic level. As both a performer and composer, I strive to offer genuine music — music that speaks to the human experience.
My work explores the child-like curiosities of what it is like to be a split atom dancing in the cosmos, the sadness and dissolution of the artistic scholar, the fantasy that is found in nature at midnight; all published in quality scores and parts with every minuet detail attended to. I make music because there are just some things said better in song, and the world needs more of that. I look forward to working with you and your groups."
