My compositions range from pieces for traditional orchestral instruments to incorporating rock instruments and using Nintendo Wii controllers and other technologies to manipulate musical and extramusical elements. Below are some examples of my varied works.

Directional Animals is a multi-media composition/quasi-video game where animal avatars–turtle, cat, horse & bear–are directed through a 3D environment with Nintendo Wiimotes.

Vertical Turtle for baritone ukulele, violin, double bass, & percussion.

Motorcycle Fantastique 2.0 is written for 4 Nintendo Wiimotes that control recorded samples of electric guitar, a motorcycle engine and other sounds.

COZY and DRY for harp, flute, electric bass, soundscapes, and visuals. This piece attempts to provoke that relaxing and therapeutic state of mind that occurs when wet weather is just on the other side of the wall.

Persianality prelude for solo electric bass.
