Greetings!

Here you'll find a collection of items which document my work as a composer.

I’ve just added another entry in the
current projects section describing my new piece, On Further Reflection, for the Atlantic Reed Consort. I’d already put one essay there; this one offers insight gained from experiencing the music in rehearsal and on pondering a bit more. The concert tour of England approaches in March, with performances of my opera, Jane’s History of England at Chawton (Jane Austen’s home town) and Godmersham (where Jane Austen frequently visited her brother Edward). And later in March, the Horszowski Trio premieres my Late Bloom on a concert at Longy on March 31.

I have recently established a presence on
Soundcloud, where more samples of my music can be found. I’ll embed links in my assorted samples page to newly-posted specific pieces.

A venture of special importance to me is an organization I started in 2013 to promote and encourage the use of contemplative practices in music. Aiming to be absolutely inclusive, to gather anyone who sees the importance of such practices in their musical lives, the organization is Contemplating Music: the Greater Boston Center for Contemplative Mind in Music. I am in the process of developing broader membership and seeking an institutional host, so please check out the links here: a
website devoted to it, and the blog, Contemplating Music, that I’ve maintained sporadically since the fall of 2012.

A recent addition to this site is a page linking to and describing my other sites, so you can head
over there and check them out if you’d like.

Please contact me if you happen to be an old friend, new friend, or if you have some notable reaction to what you find here.

Thanks for visiting...
