In Concert

 
 

Air Works

A series of works taken from my collection focusing primarily on wind instruments and subjects of breathing. Each work in this list is a recorded live performance. All relevant information for each track listing performers and rhetoric can be found under the individual track details.
 

Minimalist Works

Works of minimalist motivic content written to sculpt a specific parameter, idea or performance space. Each piece finds gravity on the topic of light; its transience and movements within forest and citiscapes.
