Compositions/Recordings

I compose both acoustic music and electronic music, especially for the electric guitar with digital processing. I plan to release a full-length album of music for solo electric guitar and live electronics this year.

Videos can be seen on the “Videos” page. Some audio recordings:

Electric Guitar (self-performed):

“Electric Currents II” – a sample track from the upcoming album. It is the only non-original composition on the album; an arrangement of Shawn Bell’s “Currents II” for electric guitar and effects

Ripples and Refractions, a two-piece EP for solo electric guitar with real-time looping and processing, on the melodic side, available for purchase via Bandcamp (2015):

Three movements from my 2011 dissertation –
“Tension and Extension”, for prepared electric guitar (with no processing),
“Three of Jacks”, a digital piece created with classical guitar samples,
“Send Me a Signal”, for live solo electric guitar with signal processing:
