I've acted as a composer and producer on a series of "audio-drama" collaborations with the weird, amazing polymath William Nava. "Audio-drama" was our vision of a genre defined by a spoken-word track, usually narrative, with a carefully built music or music-adjacent soundtrack behind it. It was modeled after the work of Joe Frank.

My big project in this space was SURGE: Wordsongs & Soundtexts (2015), an anthology of individual pieces by a wide variety of authors. I conceived the project as a showcase of what the "audio-drama" genre could accomplish. William and I worked together to publish around 20 tracks; many commissioned, a couple done by us, but with lots of editorial and production involvement. The result is a total of around two-and-a-half hours of heartbreaking, hilarious stories. It's one of my proudest accomplishments.

I contributed music to these albums by William:

Other compositions

I've played in a couple of bands. Current acts include:

Former or defunct acts include:


For a while I sang in a couple of groups focused on renaissance-era ecclesiastical music. I'm no longer doing it actively but it remains deeply influential for me. I mostly sang under the incomparable Chris Mueller. I sang every voice part from bass up to alto. Here are a couple of pages for the choirs in question that include recordings:
