My aesthetic expresses a bittersweet sound-world in which the line between tension and resolution is blurred. Much of this sound has an ethereal delicacy, but also contains moments of drama. I prefer to use climax sparingly for greater effect. I strive towards a natural expression of musical ideas avoiding synthetic, rigorous organization. An intuitive compositional process rooted in symmetry, formal clarity, and lyrical lines generates my musical structures. The sounds and patterns of nature are consistently present in this expression.
