Awards and Honors

2016 Electronic Music Midwest Festival Call for Scores

Program Note

Othello integrates the traditional tranquility of the shō with noise and dance music. This work was composed as part of my efforts to preserve the shō by adapting its aesthetics to the music of today. The music is available for download on iTunes, Amazon Music, and other distributers.
