In an effort to make recordings of my music more accessible I've decided to take steps in putting select pieces on Spotify and downloadable through Bandcamp. Now you will be able to stream my electronic dance music track "Silhouettes" on Spotify and also through iTunes, iTunes Radio, Amazon and many other online stores. However, I would recommend downloading from Bandcamp for high-quality audio. Also, if you would like you can donate through Bandcamp and directly support my future recording projects.
Also, I am excited to share the live recording of the premiere of my EDM sax. quartet piece "Lemons." The piece features jazz improvisations and moments of new music chorales over the electronic dance styles of dubstep, trap, and hip-hop. Premiered at the trendy Middlesex Lounge as part of the String & Fader: Quartet, is was a delight to work with the fine musicians featured in this quartet. I've always thought that dance music under-utilized odd time signatures. I am glad that the audience took to clapping in 5/4 with such enthusiasm. Please enjoy the recording below.
String & Fader Sax. Quartet (in order of solos):
When I am not composing chamber music, I work on something else to keep from ear fatigue and exercise my music creation in a different way. As I am influenced by a wide variety of sound sources I find that sometimes listening to different music is not enough. I feel that I should engage in the different music I listen to by creating someting in that style. If I had students I would recommend them to indulge themselves with different expressions of music as well, whether it is jazz, rock, or electronic dance music. This is a dubstep track that I've been working on for some time now and I'm happy to be able to share it with you. In this track you can hear a sample of Elizabeth Sterling, a very talented and expressive soprano.
