"It has been said that those who juxtapose a musical experience are unable to superimpose or perform phrases, at least not collaboratively, but I fundamentally disagree. My goal, in essence, is to create musical awarenesses. My work is primarily concerned with rational sound. 

All composers should explore a variety of fanfares, and (if this abandons sonic fundamentals), proceed to mix electronically until the best result is achieved. The semi-artistic consequences of composing polyphonies enables the use of a single resonance amongst many orchestral spaces. 

I have always been fascinated by the time-signature of solos, which has led me to integrate the use of 'solo-leitmotif' and spatial collaborations alongside examining the boundaries between gestures and hemiolas."--The Contemporary Classical Composer's Bullshit Generator.

Critical Thinking in the Cheap Seats

Since 2007, Superconductor has grown from an occasional concert or CD review to a near-daily publication covering classical music, opera and the arts in and around NYC, with excursions to Boston, Philadelphia, and upstate NY. I am a freelance writer living and working in Brooklyn NY. And no, I'm not a conductor.
