I put my music on IMSLP so that people could play it for free if they didn't have money to purchase it, as well as find it anywhere in the world. However, I'm still alive, and must pay rent! Please consider supporting me by purchasing the PDF on my website. Life in the music industry is tough, and I rely on people who value paying for art. Thanks!

Misc. Comments

Progressions in Conversation, sets 1 and 2, are pieces that came out of the years of living in Ottawa. I think that this is due to the political nature of the city, and the fact that it's a city, and I hadn't lived in a place with that many people before. They are all variations on a chord progression that is played around the start of the piece, and can be played as solo piano or with electronics.

In the first progression of Set 2, I was thinking about time, and kids, and how people grow up. I suppose this is one of the facts of life, that time passes, but it's sometimes an overwhelming thing to think about. I'm sure that if you think hard enough you can remember a time when it struck you as well. So, this was an attempt to express that sentiment, and perhaps also the feeling of nostalgia for innocence in youth. ​ The second progression leans more towards everyday tough questions that I'm sure people ask themselves, but don't seem to talk openly about very much. These are the overarching, existential questions such as 'what are we doing here?', 'where are we going, with all of our development?', 'who are we, as a species, as people?', and the like. This piece stemmed from a simple concept, simply thinking about what we as people are doing on this planet.
