Feels Like Far – Mixed Quintet
Sometimes the intimacy and intensity of a shared experience is best expressed by music. The character of each of these five instruments is retained in this unique combination, yet they blend into a new and distinct sound with timbres that are seemingly remote from the traditional sounds associated with them. This music transcends the composer’s imagination and you, both the performer and the audience, have the opportunity to hear your own personal journey that feels like far.
The sample score and sample mp3 include all three movements.

Illusions – Mixed Quintet
Illusions make us think we are seeing something we’re not, a deception, which is quite magical; and this piece is based on magic.
The first movement, Wild Card, depicts the journey to find one’s own way in life. The individual parts go this way and that, sometimes at peace with decisions made and sometimes filled with the unease that comes with fear of the unknown.
A wizard can be someone clever and skilled, as a computer wizard, and can also be synonymous for obsessions, including bewitchment and enchantment. Wizardz, the second movement, gives every instrument its own voice within the ensemble, sometimes clever and skilled, sometimes filled with enchantment and motivation with a little sorcery for good measure. Juggling, the third movement, sonically juggles the sound back and forth, up and down among the players, trying to keep all the balls in the air at the same time.
The sample score shows the first page of each of the three movements. At this time there is no recording available.
