Compositions

As a composer, I am most interested in how intertextuality and metaphor converge in pitch, rhythmic, and gestural schemata. My included pieces showcase this focus—either rendering strange otherwise familiar schemata or developing new schemata inspired by physical phenonema.

  • Notes: My doctoral focus on schemata-based acoustic composition grew out of my secondary area of compositional expertise: algorithmically composed electronic music. “Brain Siphon” demonstrates this part of my creative practice. The piece was written using RTCmix and mixed in Logic Pro. It was also accepted to the 2014 SEAMUS National Conference.
