Dear all, with much pleasure I invite you to the world premiere of my new composition 'On Tenderness', performed by Megumi Masaki at Brandon University, Manitoba, Canada. The composition is dedicated to the Sacred Buffalo Guardian Mountain aka Sleeping Buffalo, honoring the sacred grounds of the Stoney Nakoda, on which the Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity has been built. Welcome!

Currently finding myself as an Artist-in-Residence at Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity, Canada. So happy to be here. Discovering recording as part of the creative process, playing with sounds and words, trying out things, deep listening - new stuff in the making.

The new OMTristan 3.3 is now online; Tristan Murail and I added some new functionalities to the library last August. On the download page below some issues regarding microtonal playback within OpenMusic 6.10 are also addressed through use of the free SimpleSynth software and a patch devised by Murail. Enjoy!
