polyomi – minesweeper with colors and shapes

polyomi iconMy brother Felix has released a video game he calls polyomi, a puzzle game that he describes as minesweeper with colors.  I ended up being in charge of the audio aspect of the game, which underwent about six or seven failed iterations before finally coming to the final product.  I’m pretty happy with how it all turned out.  Feel free to leave us feedback about it!  You can play it on itch.io (and download the music for a donation of $1 or more) or on kongregate.

Roll Wave Roll!

The Tulane University Marching Band is heavy into their 2017 season!  The theme of our halftimes for this upcoming fall is “Spectrum”.  Be sure to follow us on social media!  Visit tulaneband.org for more details!

A new work for trumpet and electronics!

I’m currently working on a new piece for Trumpet and Interactive Electronics called Minkowski Etudes. It’ll have it’s world premiere this Spring in New Orleans with one of my students, Dylan Koester, as the performer. Stay tuned for more details!

Timpani Forces – published!

I want to write for you!

I am always looking for new opportunities to write music for solo musicians and ensembles, marching bands, and drumlines. Visit the commission page for more information on how we can collaborate together to create great music!
