Children Play
Large houses + many rooms = lots of excitement! Hiding, surprises, and hidden mysteries, all while playing with your friends and family. This music was written in collaboration with two collaborative choreographers and a cast of 8.
Prelude in D Minor

“A Diabolical Mess” — This work is the last in the cycle of 24 Preludes, dedicated to Dr. Douglas-Jayd Burn, a dear colleague and pianist extraordinaire. It goes on a diabolical journey from brooding passion to insanity. The piece falls apart, and is represented by terse rhythmic asymmetry and nearly non-related chords and chord tones.

Ex Tenebris
This is the second and last movement of a work commissioned for dance.
