General Update

New Video (And Therefore, YouTube Channel)

I finally got my hands on the video for Evan Kahn and John Jaworski’s recent performance of my piece, “Five Miniatures”, at San Francisco Conservatory of Music on April 4, 2016. For some reason, I did not previously have a professional YouTube channel (read: one through which I do not watch baby animal videos), so now is as good a time as ever to have one! You can check out the channel here (more videos and playlists to be added in the future).

I’m bad at this.

Well. It seems that I’m somewhat terrible at updating anything on a regular basis, but I’m trying… Some cool things are coming up! I was just selected by the Treefalls concert series to have my 2010 piano trio, “Trio in Scattered Leaves” performed on their April 24th concert in Spartanburg, SC.

I’m finishing up a piece for double choir (SSA + SATB) as part of a commission for the two top choirs at Santa Monica High School to take on tour to Europe. Wish I could go with them!

In a few weeks, I’ll get to hear a reading of my third orchestra piece, “Glacial Bridges”, performed by CCM’s Philharmonia. The orchestral machine is an intimidating beast for which to write, and being able to hear a live version of your own music is incredibly helpful.

Some past news: the Central Michigan University New Music Ensemble performed my work, “Constant”, at their December concert.

I also arranged some winter pieces from one of my favorite video games, Golden Sun, for my friends in the Videri String Quartet.

I’ll see if I can post something again before another year passes…
