Works

There are few things more exhilarating than watching a new piece of music come to life, be that through a close collaboration with a friend or through the commissioning process. Thanks for taking the time to see what I've been creating! 

 

Recordings and videos are linked below, and scores may be purchased in the shop. If you're interested in bringing something totally new into the world, I'd love to hear from you via email.
