Where Corals Lie

Sir Edward Elgar, 1899, from a cycle of 5 songs called Sea Pictures. This one is about the singer constantly hearing the call of the sea. Live recording from a recital I did in May with pianist Guy Newbury. [more inside]

Der Tod und das Mädchen

One of Franz Schubert's finest songs. Recorded, inexpertly, live in a recital I did in Oxford about a year ago with my excellent accompanist Guy. [more inside]

Every artery

A song mostly inspired by having a stressful job where I deal with lots of nervous/frustrated/severely impolite people, and its effect on me. It's a little rough because the main track is recorded on a boombox with a verrrrry old cassette.

Au Courant

Experimental electroclassical hip-hop track. First one to name the classical piece I lifted for my main brass sample gets a lollipop. (Hint, I play it in entirety in incredibly high-pitched, fast motion near the end of the track).

Virtuosi

I made this one today with a tiny low-quality string sample. This particular mix dances between halftime and doubletime throughout. I hope you can dig it.

Air in G

I liked the way this sounded when we recorded it so I thought I'd share it! Website MySpace

Soundtrack Lite

This is a song I wrote in 1992, I got around to recording it in 2004. There are a few imperfections and I would like to record it again...a better longer version. Tell me if you like it.

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

"Air" from Water Music Suite in F Major (HWV 348)

A quick, amateur GarageBand recording I made a couple years ago to amuse some friends. Punk-rock Handel with power chords and electric guitars! (Upload inspired by this and this.)

Bed Concours

A song recorded with composer's own girly operatic vocal loops and swelling orchestra—in the vein of Steve Reich and Philip Glass
