Here is a list of my most recent works:

Dirge Cannons (2012): I got the idea for the title from a work for trombones, string quartet, and voice written by Igor Stravinsky.  While his version is quite different, I hope you will appreciate the modernity, classic rock and jazz influences, as well as Hans Zimmer’s big orchestral brass sounds associated with this work.  It is written for 3 trumpets, 4 French Horns, 3 Trombones, 1 Euphonium, 2 Tubas, and Percussion.  4′

Tribute to the Trails (2010):   I gained huge appreciation for my sport while spending time on the trails, and I hope you can hear my joy through the music.  This work is scored for full concert band.

Pain (2010): Have you ever wondered what it would be like to run 100 miles?  Well, imagine the hard parts put to music.  That is this piece.  It is scored for full concert band.

Little Kachess Lake 0600, 24 August 2008 (2009):  This is a “post-minimalistic” work, gathering large influences from John Adams, Steve Reich, and Philip Glass.  It is a stream-of-consciousness work, telling the tale of the beautiful sunrise at the 10th Annual Cascade Crest 100 Mile Endurance Run, where I was blown away by the beauty of Washington’s Central Cascade Mountains while experiencing the pain of continuously running 70+ miles at the time of the 2nd sunrise of the race.
