Welcome to my blog

I have created this site in order to provide performers, listeners and composers with a description of a composer's experiences with the creative process. The posts will provide discussions of the inspirations, challenges, and successes of a composer from the inception of the piece to the culmination in performance. I will provide a link to where you can see and hear the works in progress. Comments and questions are always welcomed. They will not posted unless you grant me permission.

Pinocchio (Ballet) Performance

I recently posted the video for my Pinocchio (ballet) performed by the Spokane Youth Symphony and Sandpoint Studio One Dancers at the Festival at Sandpoint. Not the best video as we were not as close as we would have liked to have been, but fun nonetheless. - Part I - http://youtu.be/K7yBuxn9RNg Part II - http://youtu.be/6XVsm9fHY-g Part III - http://youtu.be/bp1gROcGl9w

It was an honor to have my orchestral composition adapted for this performance and there were around 2000 people in the audience. I enjoyed working with the musicians and conductor Gary Sheldon and the choreography by Scott Brown was splendid.

I also spent part of August making my website mobile friendly. Now you can see and hear every composition on either a computer or mobile device. I also made my pdf files downloadable immediately after purchase. A lot of work, but a definite improvement. Check it out at http://cooppress.net

I'm looking forward to getting back into composing.
