Bells in the wind

2020

Bells in the Wind (2020) integrates melody within a texture of sweeping arpeggios to depict images to interpret with our imaginations. There are virtuosic passages as well as a hard rock B section and improvised cadenzas.

Little Demon Prelude

2020

Little Demon Prelude (2020) is a bombastic programmatic piece following the brief adventures of two little demons. This Chopin-Liszt inspired work uses each hand to play a demon. One hand plays a melody in octaves while the other provides a whirlwind of 3-octave arpeggios mostly comprised of fully diminished chords.

Reindeer Antlerz

2019

Reindeer Antlerz (2019) is a mystical piece built on modern counterpoint, a two-chord progression, and a little bit of blues. It opens with rolled chords, followed by a melody that will soon become familiar. The B section is an escape from all the craziness with its Mixolydian Coconut Feel featuring two chords for the performer to improvise over.

Disclaimer: this piece was written on December 25, 2019, but has nothing to do with any secular or religious holiday!
