I've finally gotten around to restructuring my site to make it a bit more user friendly. There's much more audio and information about past and upcoming works. And I now have reddish links. I hope you enjoy perusing.

I'm excited to announce that I'll be expanding my recent work for my good friends in the Spektral Quartet. They'll premiere the new piece as part of a new salon series in collaboration with artist and community builder Theaster Gates. Stay tuned for more details.

I've been on tour with the Australian Chamber Orchestra as they give the first performances of my new work Movements (for us and them). It's been a tremendous pleasure working with this group. They're everything a composer could want in a collaborator (and some): flexible, comfort-averse, and democratic.
I was interviewed by Simon Moore of Fine Music 102.5 about the piece, contemporary music, and the art of the American West. Listen here if you're interested.
Thanks for everything, ACO!

Violinist Karen Gomyo premiered a new Chamber Concerto of mine a couple of weeks ago. It was the kind of 'peak experience' that shows up only once every couple of years. Karen played the piece with the kind of directness and intensity that suggested she'd been living with it for decades.

I just returned from 2 very short weeks (11 days) in northeastern Wyoming. Yup, the least populous part of the least populous state in the continental US. Lots of good work on my new piece for the ACO, and I had regular visitations from the sandhill cranes and whitetail deer. Thanks, Ucross!
