Dear future collaborator:
Welcome! For both of our benefits, please listen to the examples to the right of music by me that is representative of what I’m working on right now and music by others that continues to inspire and motivate me to keep composing. Just as your choreography or your art is a reflection of who you are, the music I compose is a reflection of who I am, as a musician and as a person. It’s hectic, erratic, rhythmic, and dense—so you can safely assume that the next piece I write is going to exemplify one or all of those qualities.
You might wonder why I have a page on my website just for you. It is because that in collaborating with dancers, filmmakers, or whomever, I sometimes get asked to compose something “in the style of” a particular genre. While many composers and songwriters feel comfortable exploring 1940s jazz or can lay down a solid beat for a club, the list of genres I can comfortably compose in is small—pretty much just Impressionism, Minimalism, and cat-on-the-piano-atonality.
Well, that’s not exactly true. I can probably make a decent electronica track for some hip-hop choreography, but would I put my name on it and start calling myself an electronica composer? No. The moral of the story is that I don’t want to disappoint you when I hand you a mess of notes and you had expected a beautiful, lyrical musical offering. This shouldn’t stop you from suggesting directions that are more ambiguous; you can always tell me if you think the piece should be meditative or poignant, spacious or jagged (or all of the above). But I’ve got to be true to myself, and I don’t want you to hold out for a classical symphony and instead receive a page of black ink. :)
If you still think it's worth it to work together, you can Contact me anytime!
