Upcoming/Current Projects:__

- USELESS -

This piece is being written in collaboration with Brian Archinal and will exist in several chapters (ch. 1 is complete).

It will make use of multiple percussion setups as the narrative unfolds (chapter 1 is a slightly modified Bone Alphabet

set and chapter 2 will be a single suspended cymbal). At the end of the project, we hope to have an evening-length

piece.

a

Still Getting Rid Of for Soprano, Mezzo-Soprano, and Orchestra. This will be written for the 2011/2012 Season of the La Jolla Symphony.

This piece will feature Stephanie Aston and Leslie Leytham and a libretto being written for the project by Clinton McCallum.
