my music featured in the Lexical Tones Podcast!

November 8, 2017

The Lexical Tones Podcast, hosted by Robert McClure, offers a weekly conversation with a guest composer, performer, and/or artist creating new works of contemporary art/music. Each creative supplies three adjectives about their work or themselves, and Rob tries to discover additional connections through discussion and listening examples (several complete compositions). These conversations often focus on aesthetics, technique, process, meaning, perception, and the musical origins of the featured guest.

You can listen to the new episode (in which I am featured) HERE

Please subscribe to the Lexical Tones Podcast on iTunes or find them on Soundcloud and Stitcher to get new episodes as soon as they are released.

Chamber Piano Concerto Commission!

December 29, 2016

I am very happy to announce that Nova Chamber Music Series has commissioned me a chamber piano concerto for their 40th anniversary season to take place in the Spring of 2018. Exact date TBA!

NOVA’s current Artistic Director, Utah Symphony Pianist Jason Hardink (who will be performing my piece) was appointed in the fall of 2009. Under his leadership the series has deepened relationships with Utah composers while broadening NOVA’s profile nationally through commissions and recordings of works by composers Curtis Curtis-Smith, Jason Eckardt, and Michael Ellison. Since 2009 NOVA has featured collaborations with Utah Symphony Music Director Thierry Fischer, soprano Celena Shafer, and the PLAN-B Theatre Company.

Book Description

Form and Process in Music, 1300–2014: An Analytic Sampler draws together papers delivered at the 2014 meeting of the West Coast Conference of Music Theory and Analysis. The conference spanned an unusually wide spectrum of musical styles, including papers on European twelve-tone music after the Second World War, fourteenth-century music, pop music and jazz, the music of living composers, narrative and characterization, and the history of music theory. The title of the book reflects the large span of musical cultures that are represented within, but also accounts for the common thread through all of these essays, a strong emphasis on understanding the forms and processes of music through analysis. The reader will find within it a compendium of analytic techniques for numerous musical styles.
