Hall of Mirrors is, at its most basic level, a musical depiction of what the exterior and interior "worlds" can seem like from the perspective of someone suffering from mental illness.

The Prefigurations are meditations on the mysterious world of the year 2020.

This is James Flores's (@contrabourdon) excellent recording of the third piece from Four Miniatures (for Organ), a work I composed this month.


"Thirty-Four (for Organ)" is basically a musical reflection on a year spent alone, after having had one's heart broken.


A synthesizer improvisation dedicated to a lovely young woman I dated this spring.

I hope you enjoy these recordings!

Thanks for the mention, Michael. I just have to edit the last two miniatures then we can release them all.

Excellent! :v)
