A Very Difficult Etude for Two Instruments

Another older piece I composed, in 2006. It uses a sort of minimalist, pseudo-metric modulation that, even though the tempo stays the same throughout, creates a kind of time-warpy impression. [more inside]

Exotic Newcastle Disease

This is a new track by my band, Royal Quiet Deluxe -- I play an amplified typewriter for percussion, Tim plays guitar, and two chickens vocalize and play keys. Also, a phone recording of a PSA about Exotic Newcastle Disease in Southern California is mixed in along with crickets, locusts, and other summer sounds in the Virginia mountains. [more inside]

Lexington Avenue Line

In a departure for me, this tune features no percussion, synths, jaw harps, scrap metal or hand held mini-vibrators, but is simply accompanied by... an acoustic guitar. Radical, huh? Anyway, as you might guess from the title, the tune is a kind of meditation on New York City. Hope you enjoy.

Bagel on the Malecon

A very New York-bred outlook at old-time Cuban music, recorded entirely with .. violas! This was my attempt to create asymmetrical but memorable melodies, clear textures crammed with material, and experiment with multitrack viola as a concept, an ensemble. The sound of the classic Cuban bands had all that - except the violas, that is. This track appears on my newly released CD, the VJOLA: WORLD ON FOUR STRINGS
