My background is in music. I have worked with the North Carolina Symphony for years and I can be heard as performer and composer on the New Amsterdam, Tzadik, Innova and Opus 3 labels.
Ctenophora is the first piece I wrote for the EMvibe, an electromagnetically actuated vibraphone that I developed. I am accompanied on this recording by members of the "acoustic laptop ensemble," Sideband. The laptopists are using modified golf video game controllers to manipulate recordings of vibraphone notes.
This is a piece that I wrote for the flute, harp and viola trio, Janus. It can be heard on their 2010 New Amsterdam release, i am not.
