I’ve been composing for several years... I have about 30 CDs of original
music... my style is music concrete/electronic/gothic/baroque... i play
synthesizer and make extensive use of recording techniques., such as backwards
sounds, tape loops, found vocals etc. I have my own label Blue Plum. Some of my
CDs are: Noiroica; Harp; A Gothic Collection; Etude (for found vocals); and The
Orchard. I also record as Lystra, which is more oriented toward dark,
multilayered electronic tracks. CDs indlude "Bleak’ (2 discs), and "Mini Album".
"4 Essays for Synthesized Brass", which is approximately 30 minutes
long — movements are: "River of Kindness" — "Indian Summer" — The Palace
of Untold Secrets" — "The Long Windy Walk Home" (Esperanza) (CD and
cassettes are available);
6th Piano Sonata (4 Movements);
"Organ Sonata No. 2" (recorded on an antique Wurlitzer in an abandonded movie theatre).

I studied music at Western Connecticut State College in the early 70s. I’ve
been a voting member of the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences for
several years. I’ve had one of my tracks included on a Todd Rundgren tribute
CD entitled "Still There is More".
