    • About

    • "Theory is a recipe for style" (James Tenney) I'm an experimental composer and theorist. I'm interested in the phenomenon of music to the degree that culture (biology vs environment) can be removed from the musical experience. I don't believe in style, but I engage in it every time I create and think about music. I experiment, explore, improvise, compose, perform, teach, and theorize. Some of my pieces are bizarre, noisy, complex; others simple, ironic, sweet, cliched (though I'm most attached to the ones simple at heart). Atypical and archetypal forms; procedural and intuitive variation and development; various cultural reference points; acoustic/electronic, analogue/digital; spoken word; corporeality, gesture, action at a distance; spectral, vibrotactile, micro sound, microtonality, micro-polyrhythm, resonance, entrainment, emergent phenomena. Activity: King Apparatus (ska, 1990-95); The Artichokes (rock, 95-97); 90-Film/TV Composer (94-2003); Combo Royale (swing, current); Experimental Composer (current); Noiselandia (experimental pop, current); Frankie Foo (ska, current).
