- more coming eventually -

Want to hear some tracks/excerpts? In addition to the sound clips available through the discography links, the Non Sequitur publishing page and below, I have over a hundred tracks streaming at alonetone; as well as some at soundcloud, myspace; and weekly postings at Sound-In (formerly ImprovFriday). I also have tracks and videos posted on my youtube channel.

Below is a small selection of pieces/excerpts not available on the discography page:

Still (2010) - a meditative electroacoustic expansion of my 1994 piece "Still Life" for solo clarinet, using a live recording by Tasha Warren as the sole sound source. The new work is about twice as long as the original: the clarinet lines are transformed into twisting counterpoint, deep bass tones, and xenharmonic pads. Ambient noise is pushed to the foreground, and drone episodes in just intonation open up the piece from the inside. Presented at Indiana University (guest lecture) and at SEAMUS 2011.

steerjuque (2010) - keyboard percussion + xenharmonic dulcimer + drum machine + warbly strings + saturated bass + field recordings

glibs (2010) - ImprovFriday mashup feat. Jukka-Pekka Kervinen, Adam Kondor, Paul Muller (see video at YT)

pastone (2010) - uses a section from my mixed qintet Two Pastorales as recorded by the Seattle New Music Ensemble
