Patagon

Patagón is the ancient, archaic name for the land of Patagonia. My newer compositions increasingly link to nature and landscape, and this latest string quartet evokes the idea of the far away, the other-worldly, and the remote.

Darsána I

Darsana I is an interactive work for a pianist playing the Yamaha Disklavier (a piano fitted with MIDI technology in its keys). I connect the Disklavier to a computer and program software to interact with a pianist. The pianist plays material which acts as triggers to the Disklavier, and causes it to respond with material I have worked out.
