Maya Angelou's poem, A Brave and Startling Truth, resonates at the deepest level and should be read, listened to and contemplated deeply by all. It was an amazing journey writing the music to underscore this poem and especially getting to work with and get to know Shelley Moon! And of course the Corvallis-OSU Symphony Orchestra members are fabulous with their expression, sensitivity, and passion.

Learn to play the theremin with Clara Rockmore! #GoogleDoodle
Very well done...I do believe that Clara Rockmore used her right hand to control the pitch and left hand for volume, though clearly some Thereminists swapped those controllers.

Various selections from all of my solo CD releases to date can be streamed here.  Enjoy.  It will quite literally be my $0.02 thanks to the way streaming revenues finally make their way to me, but I thank you for listening all the same!  Lots more music to come...

I don't often rant.  But when I do, I prefer to do so through song.  Stay happy my friends.

Just some quick notes (ha!) on the upcoming Corvallis-OSU Symphony concert coming up on February 28 at 3pm at LaSells Stewart Center.  I'll be guest conducting music from Star Wars, E.T., Star Trek and will debut my new arrangement of David Bowie's Space Oddity (opera baritone Marc Callahan is the featured vocalist), and the debut of my original music underscoring the Maya Angelou poem A Brave and Startling Truth, read by poet and storyteller Shelley Moon.
