I am deeply attracted to tango nuevo and Astor Piazzolla's music. My tangos are written in a personal style and are not intended to be like conventional ballroom tango music. This music has a great amount of freedom and uses shifting time for a feeling of fluid movement.

The photo used for the album cover was taken inside our 120-year old barn in Morgan County, WV. Major repairs were being made to the structure. For me, this image represents how I think of my written music as a framework for a collective creative process. This enables the music to change, evolve, and be a fresh experience each time it is performed.

Lead sheets and ensemble scores & parts for these pieces are available at Sheet Music Plus.
