Music

As a musician and composer, my aesthetic choices are informed by my thoughts on ontological and other related philosophical concerns. My interest lies in the Non-Representational and in the revealing of what it is in itself: the Essential.

Drawing influences from a myriad of disciplines, the nature of my work is that of research. I am also interested in the digital world and the possibilities that it presents to me. My pieces have been performed by various ensembles for example, Triple Helix Trio, Zodiac Trio, BleepBlop Ensemble, GTLork etc.,. As a drummer, I have worked extensively with artists such as Yuhan Su (Flying Alone), Cloud Ludum (Free Play), BleepBlop Ensemble (Almost Acoustic, Bounce) and Alisa Apreleva (Lucidus).

Some of my principal music teachers are Dr. Richard Boulanger (Electronic Music), Tibor Pusztai (Composition), Arnold Friedman (Composition), Dean Anderson (Percussion) and Ralph Peterson Jr. (drums).
