Featured Works

Orbit, for vibraphone and tape.

Orbit is a piece that explores the interaction between a live performer and electronics. It melds the sound of vibraphone, creating a metallic sound world which extends the sounds of the vibraphone and pushes its timbre to the limits. The tape is constructed exclusively from vibraphone samples, distorting its vibrant and bright sound and at times, inducing a much darker tone.
