31 Pieces (2022)

“My new record contains 31 tracks – all of which are going on eternally, have never started and will never end. The listener visits these harmonic worlds for a short period of time…some will be as short as a minute, some as long as six minutes.

Of the thirty one tracks, sixteen are based on polyrhythm; eight are in free time; four are in a style I’ve been developing, which I refer to in my notes as ‘Q beats’; and two of the tracks slow down continuously while double speed lines continuously enter.”

12 Etudes (2017)

“…intriguing…involving…fascinating resonances abound….all are superbly played by the composer. An important release.” International Piano

The score for 12 Etudes
