I've spent the great majority of my life living at the water's edge: 21 years on the rivers that embrace Manhattan, 24 on the shore of Pacific-kissed Malibu, and now nearly a decade, perched on a rock above the lusty Salish Sea that swirls around Washington states's San Juan Island. Many of my pieces reflect this aquatic proximity, from intimate chamber works to grand-scale electroacoustic symphonic ones, and through these pieces I'm able to share my awe with listeners.

This Intermezzo was written in 1998 as a response to the waves of the ocean at my toes, as well as a reflection of the waves of a more introspective, emotional sea. A long and lyrical theme floats above a steady ostinato, perhaps as a lengthy branch of kelp might dance from the force of each coming tide. It's these hypnotic rhythms that lull my muses, and inspire my senses— and perhaps yours.
