New recording, smidgen(S), by Geoff Burleson and David Russell.

Many thanks Geoff and David for being such troopers! Also, if anyone cares, my favorite is movement 4 – star anise!

Congratulations SIVC winners!


Congratulations to all winners at the Singapore International Violin Competition! I was very disappointed not being able to be there for all the wonderful performances by these amazing young violinists, and even more disappointed that I missed the 12 (yes, TWELVE!) live performances of my piece kilo<byte>! Fortunately, technology has saved the day again, and I watched all the recitals and concerts on YouTube! My heartiest congratulations to Sirena Huang, who won Best Performer of my work! Here’s the link to Sirena’s semi-final performance!
