Join me February 20th to keep diversity nurtured!

Sound is power

Sound knows no borders

Sound knows no religion, gender, race, class or preference

Sound Is

On President’s Day I am offering a “one time only” mix tape (really a digital download) of my favorite original synthesizer compositions over the past 30 years. The download will be available February 27.

To get your copy please donate, any amount you like, on February 20 with the paypal Donate Here link below. All proceeds will go directly to the ACLU and you will get the one time mix tape.

Hopefully we can all stay vigilant and openhearted as our democracy fibrillates in this new environment.


Welcome! I’m currently a Trainer for and spend most of my time teaching Buchla and Serge synthesis via Skype. The remainder of my time is spent exploring and creating new sounds and musics. For decades I’ve been composing both acoustic and electronic music for films, theater, radio, string quartets, orchestras and more.  Feel free to wander around in this, my web garden!

Be sure to checkout some of my Buchla tracks and explore the expressive world of the Haken Continuum and the Waterphone. And. . .the haunting world of Zen Shakuhachi Music.
