My work is, in short, a re-imagining of the 'anti-aesthetic-narratives' school of contemporary 'sketch-process' composition. As a rather chaotic composer, I yearn to mix, and layer serialistically-aleatoric experiences, an approach that features prominently in my recent binary works. As a primarily aesthetic artist, I aim to create the chord-structure within pseudo-absolute-aesthetics, and bring forth a single illusion that really develops the most critical issues. As a highly provocative composer, I explore the connection between players and awarenesses, and search for new ways to 'create the pattern'. The pursuit of microtonal pitch-class-tessituras to write the mostly-critical paradigm is a key focus of my digital study. To put it concisely, the flowing forms of any given source must never clash with the ultimately collaborative endeavour of sensing frequencies wherever possible.
The BACH motif. A musical cryptogram is a cryptogrammatic sequence of musical notes , a sequence which can be taken to refer to an extra-musical text by some 'logical' relationship, usually between note names and letters. The most common and best known examples result from composers using ciphered versions of their own or their friends' names as themes or motifs in their compositions. Much rarer is the use of music notation to encode messages for reasons of espionage or personal security (see steganography ). Because of the multitudinous ways in which notes and letters can be related, see systems below, detecting hidden ciphers and proving accurate decipherment is difficult, thus avoiding claiming the existence of inaccurate nonexistent ciphers may also be difficult.

Jonathan Larson's dream was to infuse musical theatre with a contemporary, joyful, urban vitality. Although he did not live to see it happen, his dream was achieved through the phenomenal success of his musical Rent . The Jonathan Larson Grants were created with the understanding that without the grants that supplemented Jonathan's meager income, Jonathan might never have written Rent .
Michael talks about his awakening to musical theater as a potential form of expression for his own art: “ As a producer, I was interested in the stage appearance of my acts. More and more artists of the late 1970’s began to add aspects of the theater to their performances, and I was intrigued.

The Tonal Centers Page This web page contains a list of songs that have similar chord progressions and tonal shifts (modulations) and then links them to the "Vanilla Book".

A few years ago we worked with Leif Segerstam, a composer/conductor from Finland. He had a remarkably creative way of using the English language, and as usual, I started writing my favourite quotes in our music. After a few days, I learned that several other members of the orchestra were doing the same thing. This is a compilation of our efforts.
Musicians have toyed around with music based on the human heart for decades, but we've never seen anything quite as ornate and mind-blowing as the Heart Chamber Orchestra . A collaboration between PURE , a music collective, and Erich Berger , an interactive artist, the performance involves 12 musicians, each of whom are wired to an electrocardiogram. Software then tracks their heartbeats, using them as fodder for both a projected visualization and a musical score, which the musicians see on laptops placed in front of them. Watch how intense the visuals get towards the end.
