Welcome

I am a composer, improviser, and technologist based in Brooklyn, NY. I make music for people using electronics and virtual scores. I teach electronic music at Vassar College. I make creative digital platforms for live performance and music pedagogy. I also study and write about experimental, electronic, and improvised music.

Research

A couple of articles are available online: in this article, I use statistical methods to analyze the music of John Cage; in this article, I compare performances of Earle Brown’s “open form” compositions. I also maintain a blog whose contents frequently intersect with my research projects.

Technology

In addition to my creative work with music technology, I develop virtual score software for live performance and pedagogy. I also created a Python toolkit for analyzing experimental music called IndySim. LINEWAVES is my new music and coding pedagogy project.
