WELCOME

Welcome to my website and thanks for stopping by. Over the course of the next year I will be slowly adding content and refining this site, so feel free to stop by regularly and check out what is new. My favorite new page is the listening room (under composer). Here, I have links to many of my old works for electronics and various instruments – take a listen! Current News: This fall I started my tenure as director of Level IV for the San Francisco Girls Chorus. I will be conducting them at Davies Symphony Hall Monday Dec. 7th where you can see what 350 girls singing together sounds like! My women’s chorus, Voci, had a wonderful fall season singing repertoire exploring Celestial Bodies. We will be singing excerpts of this concert at the Chabot Observatory on March 19th and will also be premiering Ann Callaway’s newly commissioned suite at WomenSing’s Treble Voices Now Festival on April 16th at the First Congregational Church in Berkeley.  I have had a busy fall, but I have been steadily working on my new piece The Body is NOT a Machine. With texts by Hildegard von Bingen, St. Francis of Assisi and Bertolt Brecht, among others, this piece will highlight my live looping “tape machine” and will premier at the Songlines Concert series on Feb. 1st, 2016 at Mills College. I have also been busy working on a new piece for multiple mobile devices titled Spectral Listening using Daniel Iglesia’s fabulous MobMuPlat. I was able to try it out with his ensemble of mobile devices down at Google and it was super exciting! Stay tuned for more details!
