As I am naturally drawn to complex music, much of what I write is complex. This is not out of a desire to make it difficult, but rather as an expression not limited by a choice to write for a particular grade-level market. I attempt to make the music interesting, while accessible, for both the performer and audience. If a piece ends up being more or less difficult that’s just the way that piece “wanted” to be.
I am easily bored in concerts (late onset ADD, my wife asserts) and, therefore, strive to make my music somewhat unusual. This can result in angular, quirky melodies, unusual orchestration combinations, phrases that are longer or shorter than expected and organizational schemes that are not of the 18th century.
