The Guardian of Phobos

Piano vs. Electronics. Kinda epic even though it's not all that long! [more inside]

Where Might the Rain Fall

Live recording from a song contest at my old high school, in 2005. This is a sort of symphonic metal-type song. I was very inspired by Nightwish at the time. [more inside]

joe's last mix

A fantastic piece of symphonic music with deep connections to electronica, joe's last mix by Tanner Menard is a fun ride (this performance is by one of my ensembles with me conducting). I've posted this before, but he and I are doing something different with the piece, and I'm wondering if any of you are interested in participating.... [more inside]

a moment

An simple instrumental piece I've been meaning to finish up since 2003. MeFi music inspired me to get it done tonight. Enjoy.

Redline Tango

More concert music: this is a piece that's part tango, part Tool (yes, really), and part just plain fun. Redline Tango is by John Mackey, and this performance by one of my university ensembles is the result of his visit and our rehearsal collaboration this past year. Enjoy! [more inside]

Another symphonic-electronica piece I made when I was sixteen. Terrifically upbeat compared to almost everything I write these days. Reaches critical mass with the help of the trusty ol' 303.

joe's last mix

And Now For Something Completely Different: This is a piece of concert music, played by a large ensemble of instrumentalists. I'm a conductor, and I often collaborate with young, up-and-coming (and often quite brilliant) composers, by commissioning new works and premiering them. This is one such piece, played by one of my university ensembles. joe's last mix, by Tanner Menard (who mainly composes computer/electronic works), uses as a point of departure the ways the DJs construct mixes--this generates the large-scale form as well as some of the ways he manipulates the musical motives. (My favorite moment is either the Latin-esque groove about 3:30 in, or the amazing transformation of texture about about 4:30.) It's an unusual piece, that I think rocks, and I'm very interested in your feedback--what do you think of these sounds? (Also, I recommend headphones--there's a lot of ear candy going on in there!)

Two Giants

I made this track when I was sixteen and just getting into music production. I can't bear to listen to very much I produced in those days, but I do still enjoy the cinematic quality of this one. A nice little modulation at 2:15 or so.

Sleep City Limits

Take 1 part Philip Glass, 2 parts Orbital, add a touch of Hans Zimmer and stir.

The Earthquake was a Disaster

Picture yourself experiencing an earthquake in slow motion. The eerie calm beforehand leading up to the main event itself. Relax and let yourself live through this instrumental story all the way to the finale. Sprinkled with memories of "Close Encounters of the Third Kind."
