I took a walk in the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum and brought my shakuhachi flute. Totally lo-fi cell-phone recording. There were birds singing along with me the whole time, but you can only hear a couple loud avifauna near the end. ShakuhachiArboretum.mp3 6 MB

A work in progress created in March 2006, this track was commissioned my good friend and collaborator choreographer Heather Parker. It grew out of some interactive sensor work we did that resulted in an amazing performance at the 2006 Spark Festival of Electronic Music and Art. We performed at the always amazing Southern Theater. The staff there never fails to rock my world; I always love working with them. Intoxifix.mp3 4.5 MB

Ten-minute work for brass choir, performed by the University of Minnesota Brass Choir, under the baton of Craig Kirchhoff. David Baldwin is the director of the brass choir and rehearsed the piece with them, but he had to run out of town at the last minute. It was a real pleasure to work with everybody involved.
