Well, for spelling my name right you should be rewarded! Though I have nothing to offer but the gift of music. And, actually, I am trying in most cases to sell that, so it's hardly a gift...anyway...


Come on in and have a look around -
    surely I can't charge you for that!



WHAT'S NEWS

SUMMER 2015

Just got back from Scandinavia - vacation mostly, but I did manage to hook up with my friend / staggeringly good percussionist and nice guy Anders ├ůstrand, who invited me to play a little improv with him at a St. Jakobs summer music series concert. Fun!

Heard back from Tapspace  - very happy to announce that I signed a contract for Smoke and Mirrors recently, and that they have begun working on it. Look for it soon!

Description from last year:  The work was designed as a companion piece to the old stand-by, Bicksa.  However, this piece differs in the following respects: It's almost 10 minutes long; it has keyboard percussion for contrast, and since it was written for the Vienna Conservatory it somehow feels more "European" if that's at all an adjective - It recalls some of the textures I used in the 2006 comission, Euonymus Alatus. Commissioned by N. Zivkovic for Ensemble Schlagwerk Wien at the Vienna Conservatory.

A dress - rehearsal of the piece is on youtube if you want to check it out! If you are interested in getting a copy, contact Tapspace.


OTHER THINGS?

Working feverishly on a new concerto for Symphonic Orchestra and percussion soloist - and I arrogantly intend to premier the work here is Pocatello with the Idaho State Civic Symphony coming February, 2016.

Keep posted for more updates!
