New CD Coming Soon! 

Hello Listeners,

This is just an update.  The new CD that I announced several months ago was coming soon is, well, still on the way.  What "happened" was that I made more music, some of which seems like it belongs on the upcoming release.  So I am again finalizing the selections and hope to make this new collection available by summer's end. Here's what I can say about this CD.  The new CD (working title "Threshold") will contain 16 tracks.  Half of these will be new, never released in any form works, and…

I've composed and/or served as sound designer for a number of faculty and student dance and video projects that have received performances both within and outside of LMU. Also in the teaching realm this year, as the result of a very successful experiment held with the expert help of rising star choreographer Chad Michael Hall at the 2008 ACDFA…
