After learning about Avant Garde music from my clarinet professor, Dr. Cassandra Hibbard, we both decided that, as a film scoring major, I should write my own piece to perform for my junior recital.
I have performed various Avant Garde pieces: movements from Libby Larsen's Dancing Solo, Soliloquies by Leslie Bassett, and Flammes by Janos Komives. Solitude is heavily influenced by all of these works together, and I added piano and mallet accompaniment for effect.
Solo Hammered Dulcimer
Now available on iTunes, Spotify, CDBaby and all other streaming services!
Alone River is the second of two compositions I wrote for solo hammered dulcimer at the age of seventeen. This piece is in E minor, giving a feeling of wandering near the waters.
This is my first piece for hammered dulcimer. It has a somber, melancholy feel. I wrote this piece and recorded it from scratch along with Alone River.
A short, fun duet for two bass clarinets. In this duet, I create a "stomping effect" in the beginning followed by heavy, tense lines and a humorous, falling solo at the end.
This is my first piano piece ever. It is dark by nature, and includes angry moments as well as softer, sad sections.
Electronic Music- Musique Concrete and Dubstep
My first electronic piece. This was recorded on my first microphone ever... a Plantronics web microphone and computer speakers! This was played from MuseScore, before I learned to use Finale.
We Are The Millennials
A dubstep soundtrack written for a Social Media themed church video.
The Sword of Sif
An orchestral epic cue inspired by Lady Sif in the Thor movies and cartoons.
