Piano Sonata #1 (clip)

Here is a clip from my first (and only, to this point) contemporary piano sonata, written while studying with Dr. John Downey at UW-Milwaukee. The piece taps an assertive energy, spinning out dissonant cells, interspersed with a syncopated silence from which the music creeps, and explodes.

Podbean account closed for now.

"On Passing": my high school epic song of angst

Here is a clip from "On Passing," an epic romantic-style mood piece I composed and recorded in high school (which explains the sound quality)
with my high school musician friends singing, playing flute and oboe. (I'm on piano.)
