I have been very active writing new works for marimba and percussion during 2016 and the first part of 2017.   Here is a listing of my most recent compositions.  You can find more information and/or audio files in the composition section of this website.

Untitled Orchestra composition (2017).  I have finally written a work for symphony orchestra!  It is in three movements, and about 26 minutes in length.

Look Forwood With Your Feet (2016, is for marimba and five percussion.  It was written in July of 2016, and premiered at PASIC 2016 in November of 2016, by the UT Austin Percussion Ensemble, Thomas Burritt, director, and Andrew Sickmeier, marimbist.  Similar in orchestration to Four Faces (marimba, four percussion, and electric bass), the chosen percussion instruments included three cymbals, maracas, bongos, and high and low drum.  This way balance isn't a problem for the marimba soloist.  Not yet scheduled for publication by KPP, so write to me if you are interested in the music and a possible performance.

DF-2 (Don't Forget Domaine Forget) (2016) is for solo 5.0 marimba.  It is dedicated to the percussion students at Domaine Forget 2016, where I taught for a week during the summer of 2016.  It has not yet been premiered, and is not yet scheduled for publication by KPP, so write to me if you are interested in the music and a possible performance.

Luvlars (2016) is for solo 5.0 marimba, and was written for Larissa Venzie.  It is a very beautiful composition and is not yet scheduled for publication by KPP, so write to me if you are interested in the music and a possible performance.  A sound file of an informal performance of this work by Larissa will soon by on my website in the Compositions section.

Choro No. 4, by Augusto Marcellino, is for 5.0 marimba.  The Choros 1, 3, and 9 have become exceptionally popular since their release some years ago.  Finally, here is the next one.  It should be released by KPP during the summer of 2017.  Check their website at www.mostlymarimba.com.

Prolific Platitutes (2016) is for percussion quartet, and was written for the Ithaca College Graduate Percussion Quartet.  It was premiered in the spring of 2017.  The instrumentation is for 5.0 marimba, vibrphone, xylophone, and drum set.  This is a fun work of about 6-7 minutes, perhaps best suited as an opener or closer to a percussion concert.  It is not yet scheduled for publication by KPP, so write to me if you are interested in the music and a possible performance.

Crystal Caverns (2016) is for solo 5.0 marimba, and was written for Lindsey Eastham, who premiered it at Ithaca College in the spring of 2017.  It is a fun, yet challenging work for the advanced marimbist, in two large sections, both ot which center around  E-minor.  It is not yet scheduled for publication by KPP, so write to me if you are interested in the music and a possible performance.
