about

Broken Symmetries features four of my electro-acoustic pieces written between 2012 and 2016.

This music is very personal, as I perform on electronics on 3 of the 4 tracks collected here. These pieces are my attempt to merge two distinct aspects of my personality as an artist, drawing my largely improvisatory language as a laptopist into the world of composition and notation, while at the same time pulling my notation-based language into the world of improvisation. This is the drama of the music.

While personal, these works were also all written for the people on these recordings, who are some of my best friends and without whom this music simply could not exist. A million thanks to Wet Ink, Anne, and Mivos for their incredible musicianship.
