"In addition to performing and teaching, I spend a significant amount of time organizing commissions for new works, both individually and by leading consortiums, in order to give back to the percussion community and continue pushing the boundaries of this medium. I am interested in finding ways to cross over into other genres and disciplines, in order to more effectively relate to a variety of audiences. This mission has led me to two different kinds of solo percussion music: that which includes electronics, and that which includes some sort of a theatrical element."
"I have been constructing two new solo programs over the last two years: one containing all solo percussion works with electronics (titled ELISION), and one containing all theatrical percussion works. Both programs are nearly finished, each lacking only one final piece. With that said, I am writing to request funding for the creation of two new pieces. The new works would complete each program, both of which are being booked for touring during the 2019-2020 season at universities, on recital series, and more."
