"Moment/Lifetime" was created for the Modern Dance Piece "Truth" by Turkish Choreographer Beliz Demircioglu. The piece premiered @ New York University’s Tish School of the Arts Auditorium on 2/28/03, it went on to be performed at various dance festivals around the world and on Broadway in New York City.

“Sakuna” was commissioned by The Island Moving Company and was also written up in The New York Times.

“Partial View” was created as the sound track for a video short by Choreographer Andrea Woods. In addition “Partial View” (and it's variations) continues to be performed to live audiences by Andrea Woods "Souloworks" Dance Company.

My music is dedicated to Marisol, for with her all things seem possible and without her all things possible seem less meaningful.

For that which you love most may be clearer in its absence, as a
mountain to the climber is clearer from the plain – Kahlil Gabran
