a busy year, music and children

I've been spending a lot of time being a father to my wonderful girls who are getting big too quickly. My oldest is nearly 5 and her sister has already had her first birthday and her first taste of chocolate cake.

Somehow in the midst of all this growing up, I've been able to make some new music. In December 2009 I released the music for the video game Zaku. It is available for download from iTunes and my own website. An old fashioned plastic disc can be purchased at CDBaby.

In June I completed Movement Mandala 13, 43 minutes of music for the choreographer Murray Spalding. The piece premiered in New York at St. Mark's Church June 24. As always, I am so amazed and baffled by the dancers. They performed beautifully in a very hot and steamy room for 45 minutes without a break! Thank you to all of them for giving the piece form and life.
