Pacific Coast Highway

For four guitars. I’m finally making this charismatic quartet composition available on my website.

Just Sayin'

For me this piece invokes the spirit of a time long gone by, when as a little boy I would play music with my father and uncle, and we'd have family sing-alongs. A relaxed and cool groove, this piece blends so much of the music I loved at that time, from early folk music to Smother's Brothers recordings to a generous hint of Antonio Carlos Jobim. Medium difficulty. 8 pages

California Breeze

For two guitars. I recorded this duet with Dai Kimura for Sony Japan in 2005. The video was filmed in Malibu California by Sony to promote the Japanese-only release of the recording. Originally titled “Genève”, I wrote this in 1986 while visiting Geneva Switzerland, and I renamed it "California Breeze" at the request of Sony for the recording with Dai. This is more of a popular tune, and I have not published it until now because I hesitated to write out the chordal accompaniment patterns, which were played somewhat freely, and not at all in a classical style. But finally my desire to publish this refreshing piece overcame my reservations, and I notated a reasonable facsimile to what I played on the recording. 20 pages.

Transilience

Three movement suite for Guitar, Flute and Cello; challenging and complex work. I wrote this three movement suite for guitar, flute and cello in London in 1991. It was a commission by guitarist Joel Brown, and was recorded on the CD "Five Premieres" for Albany records. This is a composition with complex thematic interaction and lots of meter changes in the third movement, hence the title Transilience - which means to change quickly from one state to another. 61 pages

Archimedes

for voice and guitar. Humorous and charismatic work for voice and guitar, about Archimedes and his Eureka moment. Written for John Olson and Gioia De Cari, John and Gioia commissioned me to write a piece that was science based for a project they had been working on for several years, and what better subject for the piece than my hero, the great Greek mathematician Archimedes. Gioia and John came up with the brilliant video concept based on the lyrics I wrote for the piece. This is an instant classic!. Score and parts, twenty pages.
