As a composer, I write chamber music, operas, dance and film scores. Please follow the links above to find out more about these various pursuits.
My compositions have been used on the web site of Margaret Atwood's novel, Oryx and Crake; on works created for Hubbard Street Chicago Dance, the Nederlands Dans Theater, Ballet British Columbia, Dance Umbrella and Singapore Dance Theatre by choreographers including Aszure Barton and Gioconda Bartuto, on a special dance segment created by Shawn Hounsell for Ballet Tech Cincinnati's gala of International Dance Stars, on a web video of the London International Festival of Theatre, on the soundtrack of Alejandro Alvarez's short film Deep Sleep and Edouard Lock's award-winning film, Amelia.
I also contributed additional music to the CBC documentary series China Rises. Current projects include creating original music for Playing Landscape, a multi-media performance featuring the work of the Chinese painter Cindy Ng.
