Music is made as life itself, it breathes and pulses with energy. Comprised of rhythmic and harmonic "cells", each independent of the other, like the colors of isorhythms. Ever-replicating-partially and fully—slowly mutating, evolving-creating ever-larger cells of gesture and phrase, which eventually bear new forms. Articulations and orchestrations interpolating patterns of pitch and rhythm born as the infinite diversity of being...Success relies on the fragile balance of Composer-Listener-Nature... for this truly transcends the pure physicality of sound waves and life becomes the music itself.

...born in Seattle on June 6, 1970. grew up on the Salish-Kootenai reservation in Arlee...
