I am an eclectic composer with many interests. I write in many styles, for many different kinds of ensembles. My consistent approach is that I am versatile and adaptable, although I do agree with Lou Harrison that most of the time "it's all about the melody."
As a performing musician, I also like to write music for the groups I perform with, which includes jazz lead sheets, songs, avant-garde scores, and choral music. I have also written and performed music for Javanese gamelan, rock bands, and poetry-performance groups.
Here are links to loosely categorized pages containing sample tracks and scores of my composed music.
