About Me (Must include at least one paragraph of biographical information about you as a composer) - blank or minimal answers on this line will cause your request to be rejected. Include a link to your website if you have one.
Hello, I am a 12 tet and microtonal composer who works at the edge between acoustic and electronic instruments.

My art is about now and is a response to the inspiration I feel from the visual, musical, poetic, and literary art of 20th and 21st centuries as well as world events . The art of our period I think has so much to say about who we are, where we have been, and what we will, or will not be as a community – a world village – a people, a unity of souls divided by the gulf of physical being and monetary inequity but united in spirit, desires, hopes and dreams. My goal is to communicate with you and if what I do speaks to you then I as an artist have succeeded.

I have performed several times in Urbana IL at the Independent Media Center in association with Oddmusic Urbana and performed at the Xenharmonic Praxis 2011 held at the Gesundheit! Institute in West Virginia. My music has received radio play and I have had pieces selected for the 2010 Voxnovus / UnTwelve 60 by 60 (17ET Jazz), and 2011 Vox Novus 60×60 international mix (Free Sue). These pieces have been performed in Chicago, New York City, Boston and other cities internationally. (Vox Novus 60×60) Additionally my composition “Ediacaran Garden” for classical guitar has been selected and performed by Kenji Haba in New York City as part of the Vox Novus Composer’s Voice series.

I am currently a member of the board of director’s for the Untwelve Organization which is devoted to advancing microtonal music and I am involved in a number of microtonal internet gatherings and I am a member composer for Vox Novus. I also offer web hosting for the music of fellow artists on a case by case basis. Please contact me if you have a need.
