I welcome the opportunity to explore
and discuss the act of creating art music, through discussion with my fellow
composers and to listen to and talk about, the music we create. I am fascinated
with what inspires composers and the techniques they use in their compositions,
and would welcome composers who are interested in discussing these questions, and
any other ideas related to them. When I present my own works, I try to describe
my personal approach and its intersection with visual arts, as well as my
efforts to create a music in which craft and inspiration meet to make something
that goes as deeply into expressivity as possible.
I suggest that if you are also a
performer, that you bring your instrument, so we can experiment with ideas as
they come during our sessions, and try out works in progress together.
