About this album

Solar Flare (2001)
A large, dramatic curve driven by a rich but transparent texture, made of hundreds of glissandi (a glide between two different notes), covering the entire frequency range that can be represented on a typical CD. The original version of Solar Flare was composed for an eight-channel surround sound system.

Radio Communications (2003-09)

The idea for this cycle of pieces came when I noticed with compositional interest the “tunes” the stereo in my car would produce when driving through areas with poor reception. The resulting tunes would vary from a heavily filtered broadcast to pure noise patterns. The three movements of Radio Communications are essentially three fictional broadcasts, where the first movement suggests a folk-like tune heavily filtered, the second movement, the shortest of the set, brings an increased fragmentation of the radio signal translated into delicate granular counterpoint patterns, and the last movement, a rhythm based piece using colored noise as the only sound material.

Artificial Life (2007-09)
Artificial Life, a two-part cycle of compositions for computer, describe how I have imagined the music of future machine societies. This cycle portrays the “before and after” of music traditions among intelligent machines.
