Bees: 5 Poems of Emily Dickinson

Commissioned by Ballet Spartanburg

Fantasy in F Minor

Take one deflating yoga ball, add one little boy's voice, combine with funky electronic sounds: there you go!

I Colored a Wanted Music I Can Always Hear

piano solo


Commissioned by Wael Farouk for his Carnegie Hall debut. A work that is both simple and flashy. The title is a poem my son, Aidin, made up at age six.

Monody in Memory of Aaron Copland

piano solo


Written in the days following Copland's death, this is a work based on a chord featured prominently in "Appalachian Spring," and featuring a poignant quote from that work.

Prelude in B-flat Minor

piano solo


Sometimes, you just want to imitate a Bach prelude...

Ritual Meditations

piano solo


A very meditative, nine-movement work, lasting over 35 minutes. The musical language combines aspects of minimalism, gospel hymnody, Bartok, and others, Two movements are piano adaptations of works I wrote for chorus and wind ensemble, and one movement dates back to my undergraduate days.

Suite for Guitar

guitar solo


Three-movement work in Keef tuning: I. Prelude, II. Andante Espressiveo, III. Hard-Rock Finish. Wonderfully premiered by Michael Patilla.

Two Movements for Marimba

marimba solo


Written for David Bessinger and his remarkable low-C marimba. Features two movements: Prelude and Toccata-Rondo


amplified ukulele and recorded sounds


I wanted a piece I could perform, and this is the result. It's a hypnotic, nervy, minimalist work featuring a live performer and a background of recorded and electronically altered ukuleles (think "Electric Counterpoint" with a ukulele).
