Bristolbelfry

A revised version of “The Ballet of the Soul,” my choral setting of words by Beach Boys lyricist and poet Stephen John Kalinich, will be performed during Fall Convocation at Westminster Choir College on September 3 at 4:30 PM in Bristol Chapel. Under the direction of Magdalena Delgado, one of our talented choral conducting graduate students, twenty members of the incoming class will be singing the piece. Excited to rehearse it with them next week.

Welcome to the new home for my blog, File Under ?. 

I have been writing about new music, especially the not-so-easily categorized sort, using this blog handle since 2002.

It has been hosted, successively, by Splendid Magazine, Copper Press Magazine, and Sequenza 21.

With Sequenza 21 moving to a new single page model shortly, I decided to bring the blog onto my personal website.

Information about my work as a composer may be found on this site too; there are separate pages with a works list, performance calendar, and a page where you can purchase scores.

My blog posts and links to my writings for other publications may be found here.  For “quickie” posts, usually sample audio and video streams pertaining to stuff about which I’m writing, check out File Under’s Tumblr page. Audio samples of my music may be heard on my Soundcloud page.

I look forward to interacting with readers via WordPress!
