“Uncharted Territory” – poster session

Hey! Thanks for checking out my Poster Session and finding out more about my upcoming Suite. Below are some examples that show my style as a composer. In addition to current work on the suite, there is a big band piece and a composition for quintet.

If you haven’t seen the video yet and just arrived at this page, find out all about my upcoming suite by scrolling below! (or click here if you want to go to YouTube). Please consider subscribing to my email list or connecting with me on facebook to stay up to date with this project.

Success! You're on the list.

Sample Recordings

The “Les Contes d’Hoffmann” suite will be made up of five movements. Below is a sample of my current work on “Voyez-La” from Act II of the opera. The song is one of mockery towards the protagonists recent love interest. I want the song to be a mix of dissonance while also having a playful tone. As I develop, I will likely move into new harmonic areas, but return to the ostinato at future points.
