Compositions

The pieces (should) stand by themselves. The ‘notes’ constitute some of my reflections on them and do not constitute definitive statements about how people should play them. Musicians should feel free to disregard these reflections and/or explore other manifestations of the pieces. Many of these pieces constitute invitations to explore a particular sonic or relational world in a quite open-ended way, putting a lot of trust in the performers and process. (Score may get slightly updated over time—please check back for the most up-to-date versions.)
