As a composer, my approach is to create spaces that support and highlight musical conversation. Some of the conversations are notated, to be read/interpreted by a performer. Some of the conversations are to be improvised.
Though the development of electronic and electro-acoustic music is extraordinary in so many ways, I am not inclined to incorporate computer technology as a voice in a composition. Call me old-fashioned, but frankly I do not want us to forget the possibilities of acoustic music, particularly its ability to touch the very souls of our beings.
These compositions are not easily described by applying a particular genre description, so for now we call them art music.
