I have been on the faculty at Duke since the fall of 1990, having earned degrees in music composition from the Eastman School of Music (BM 1980) and the Yale School of Music (DMA 1991). My work as a composer has centered on instrumental and vocal media, including compositions for the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, the New York Philharmonic, the Philadelphia Orchestra, the Netherlands Wind Ensemble, and the Ciompi Quartet. I have also composed music for dance, theater, and video. Recordings of my work are available on CRI, Equilibrium, and the Centaur labels. Recent works include Nasuh for soprano and string quartet, and Bell Plates for percussion solo and electronic sound.
