Work Overview

Some Quiet Graveyard was inspired by thoughts of the awesomeness of the universe. Hanging raggedly off an insignificant star in a minor galaxy somewhere on the outskirts of the universe is a minor planet which
on a cosmic time-scale can at best be considered 'some quiet graveyard':
Beyond the moon / Beyond the darkness / Starkness / One small cloud of dust / Just /
Some Quiet Graveyard / Beyond the speed of light
In most cases when I compose a piece, I use the work as a study for the exploration of some aspect of the technology. This leads to a very intimate relationship with the technology, and often involves design and construction of equipment and/or the development of computer software. A feedback situation then exists where musical requirements directly dictate technological research and design, and these in turn modify the musical possibilities.
