“…My current research includes vertical harmonic construction and the prolongation of fixed pitches on the staff. Not limiting myself to one school of thought, the musical language I base my work on shows no bounds and consists of synthetically constructed harmonies consisting of quasi-symmetrical patterns—typically in the form of non-octave repeating scales. The limiting nature of these structures allows for less traditional writing techniques which I value for creating a more personal form of art. As a composer who obsesses over consistency and unity, I take great care in aligning the vertical and horizontal pitch structures in a work. The advantages of these techniques open new doors of harmonic construction that allow me to realize a work and the atmosphere I wish to evoke.”
