“Butterfly Lullaby” Additional Instrumentation

Originally scored for mezzo-soprano, viola, and piano, my 2012 original song “Butterfly Lullaby” now includes an alternate part for cello (instead of viola), as well as a version of the score available for baritone voice (instead of mezzo-soprano).

With these additions, I hope more musicians will enjoy exploring this sweet little song!

New and Upcoming Releases

The single for “Crystallization (A Winter Passacaglia)” is now out on your favorite streaming platforms!

A wintery piano solo, inspired to be written during the 2020 holiday season. Dedicated to my dear friend, Michael Jung, who’s always willing to try anything I throw at him.

What else am I up to…?

A new album in the works!

This upcoming album is in still in its conceptual stage, but my thinking is to include recordings of the following works:

I have to admit that it’s a weird feeling, thinking about recording live musicians again, after this long year of distancing. I’d gotten so used to the idea of relying on myself and my computer for everything! But, while I do wonder if I will know “how to people” again soon enough (lol), I am looking forward to working with my friends and colleagues, making music in person again. And I think this project is a great way to get myself into the groove again. <3

“Lock & Key Vol II” Now Available!

Enjoy listening to this brand new compilation album of new chamber works, including my haunting tarot-quintet, “The Oracle“!

LOCK & KEY VOL II is the second presentation of five composers drawing from the well of inspiration – in highly heterogeneous ways and from a plethora of sources, yet all united by a common theme: the profound depths of the human experience. The pieces all revel exuberantly: in the natural beauty of Iceland, the nostalgia evoked by a distantly familiar melody, the random augury of a deck of tarot cards, late 19th Century anthems adapted for woodwind quintet, or the kinetic energy of musical gestures. Confidently asserting that all facets and walks of life can be a source of music if you listen closely enough, LOCK & KEY VOL II features brand-new chamber works by Sarah Wallin-Huff, Herbert Deutsch, Kenneth Kuhn, Carol Barnett, and Philippe Kocher.
