Film Score - Of Fortune and Gold

Of Fortune and Gold was that rarest of things: an indie film with a live orchestral score. I was thrilled to work on this film as composer and conductor.

The Colossus of Rhodes

Currently un-premiered! The first of a proposed series for orchestral pieces inspired by the Ancient Wonders of the World. Full orchestra with some metallic surprises.

Quetzalcoatl, the Feathered Serpent

Currently un-premiered! The first of a proposed series of orchestral pieces depicting the gods of the Meso-American traditions. Full orchestra with interactive, moving percussion.

Multimedia and collaborative work

Film Score - Of Fortune and Gold

Of Fortune and Gold was that rarest of things: an indie film with a live orchestral score. I was thrilled to work on this film as composer and conductor.

Element B

For 4-channel speaker playback but often presented in stereo, Element B is all electronic, generated sound involving extensive use of random selection from set arrays of pitches. Organized in a classical ABA format, the piece is contemplative, immersive, and patiently evolving.


A comedy web series about the adventures of three slackers and their attempt to avoid paying rent by living a permanent couch surfing existence. I composed both the theme and episode music and even appeared in an episode as a guy with a cowbell!

The Garden for Wayward Girls

A modern dance collaboration with Choreographer Micheline Wu and Taffety Punk Theatre based on legends and myths of girlhood. The music was a combination of live keyboard and cello with live electronics.


Collaborative play demonstration (the first few scenes of a full-length drama) of a new multi-media play IM/UR by Kit Danowski and Lance Gharavi. I wrote all of the music, ambient or otherwise, for this project using a combination of recorded voices, SuperCollider, and punk rock quartet. In addition, a prominent feature of the play was an interactive music table; the table was viewed by an overhead camera (programmed with Jitter by Nahla Matar) to play certain audio files created in SuperCollider depending on the position of tarot cards on the table.

Voodoo Dreams

A large multimedia experience that brought the Jewell Parker Rhodes book of the same name to the stage. I created soundscapes for the Louisiana Bayou, New Orleans marketplaces, and voodoo rituals, and managed sound during the production, but what I’ll remember best is getting to sit in with the live drum ensemble onstage, led by world-renowned voodoo drummer Frisner Augustin.

Resin Records
Indie Punk from DC, 1993-2000
Resin Records Catalog
Once upon a time, I was in indie punk bands in Washington, DC. None of that music has made it to the streaming era, but I am hard at work submitting it to streaming platforms now. Watch this space for links in the future to 90s DC bands Grendel, Roto, The Better Automatic, and possibly other artists from the old Resin Records catalog as well.
