For his latest release, Ballades, he has collaborated with Piano & Coffee Co. Doug is currently working on a 12 months project–the Seasons, a collaborative homage to the music of Tchaikovsky.
His interest in multi-media associations has also led to engagements with choreographers, photographers and visual artists from around the world, including London, New York and Reykjavík.

A part-time writer, Doug frequently publishes articles and album reviews.
"Music allows me to express ideas and feelings in a unique way. Each piece I compose is an attempt in finding balance between interest and beauty, within the limits of my own language and experience. I like the idea that music can provide us with an alternative to our daily life, whether it completes it, or helps us take some distance from it."
