My research over the past year has focused on microtonal composition for both acoustic instruments and electronics, with an interest in approaching tuning as resonance in my compositions.*
Expanding on this work, I am embarking on a two-year project to design and build a series of microtonal percussion instruments. Once completed, these instruments will be used alongside traditional orchestral percussion instruments in a series of acoustic and mixed compositions for chamber ensemble.
