EMPP and the Induction Connection (Monday, 11 December 2017)

After a long hiatus, I'm happy to be working once again on some electromagnet-related projects. I took advantage of the renewed activity to (finally!) post some example sound files to my Electromagnetically-Prepared Piano page, magneticpiano.com. See Audio Examples 1 and Audio Examples 2. Great to be looking at this stuff again!

Article for Arcana (Monday, 14 November 2016)

I am thrilled to be contributing an article to the next edition of John Zorn's Arcana series: Arcana VIII. I'll be writing about the composition of my opera, Pedr Solis, and how that ties in with my research on literature and music.
