Thanks for taking a minute to listen to my music. The clips that you can listen to here represent my various musical interests as both a guitarist and composer. I hope you enjoy!
City of Creation is a piece I composed in December of 2008 for my large ensemble, Aerial Photograph. This piece was inspired by conversations with various Philadelphia based artists and musicians. It's form is a repeating motif which is continually altered as it makes it's way through the entire ensemble. This song is featured on the Aerial Photograph record, "Ways and Means".
The Sycamore Tree is an original solo guitar piece I recorded at home. It's a very chromatic piece which uses many extended harmonic ideas.
