Last night was the premiere of my trombone quartet, Whirlwind. The recording is also now up. You can listen to it here.
My fixed media piece Moog Dreams was premiered tonight. Since it's an electroacoustic piece, the recording is also now up. You can listen to it here.

I've written another piece for Iowa's annual 24+24 concert, which was premiered two nights ago. This was for solo English horn. Recording is now up:
Recordings of my performances at Charlotte New Music Festival are now up. First is the first movement of my new quintet , titled Stirrings, and then Burst, a short thrash metal piece (yes, thrash metal), which I'm planning on extending.
Scores can be viewed here:
Excited to announce that my piece Annealed in Fire was selected to be broadcast on Et Lux Radio, a new online radio station dedicated to playing contemporary classical music. I can't say exactly when my piece will air, but it's in "the rotation" right now, so to speak.

Charlotte New Music Festival is over. At it, I got to have two performances of newly-written pieces of mine: the first movement of my quintet, Stirrings, performed by the Out of Bounds Ensemble; and a short viola-cello duet, performed by members of the Beo String Quartet. It was a blast meeting these performers, as well as other performers at the festival, and, of course, all the other composers who were participating. Looking forward to more of these gatherings in the future.
