December 19, 2020: Third entry is my latest release that was released today! This is my first arrangement of a Christmas carol, Lo, How a Rose E’er Blooming! Again, I used the orchestra as a template to create this music. Also, written out in Finale first, then exporting the midi file into Digital Performer for more fine tuning the articulations. The music is available at all streaming and download services. Here is the link to stream on Spotify Lo, How a Rose E’er Blooming

December 19, 2020: Second entry is my next release Haze on the Mountain. This piece was first written in Finale, the notation program, and then exported as a midi file in my DAW, Digital Performer, for fine tuning the articulations of the instruments in the orchestra. I use Vienna Ensemble Pro Server to park all my sound libraries, which I use in both Finale and Digital Performer to create a mockup. The pandemic stresses me out like everyone else and I gravitated one day towards expressing a relaxing inward journey as a musical expression. Using the orchestra as a template has always been my favorite approach in designing a soundscape, especially for writing a piece like this. I also created a music video on my Youtube Artist Channel. The music is available at all streaming and download services. Here is the link to stream on Spotify Haze on the Mountain

December 19, 2020: Adding new entries here. First, I released the single Paper Flags and the Wind, which is the music for the following video on my Youtube Artist Channel.

April 6, 2020: Well, it’s a rough ride for everyone with this pandemic affecting all of us. I was in Galway, Ireland for the last several months this year. I was going to stay until the end of May, but then the coronavirus came about and disrupted all our plans. I headed back as fast as I could back home. I’m here now and safe. While in Galway, I did write some music. One of the pieces that I composed while in Galway is called Floating Lakes It was officially released on April 3, 2020 on Apple Music, Spotify and other music digital formats. A review of the composition was reviewed by Kathy Parsons and you can read it at Kathy Parsons’ Review of Floating Lakes Link on Spotify at Spotify Floating Lakes and on Apple Music at Apple Music Floating Lakes Here is the link to see the music video on my Youtube Artist Channel.

June 17, 2018: I just got back from a trip to Europe. I went to the Netherland and went to Amsterdam, Deventer and Middelburg. All these places are related to promoting my current composition At the Center for mezzo soprano and orchestra. Below is a link to hear the mockup version of the conductor’s score. It was very moving to visit these places where Etty Hillesum lived. The text to the composition is an entry from Etty Hillesum’s diary, specifically entered on November 15, 1941, a prayer for guidance.
