The Western classical system of musical notation is a powerful and flexible tool, one of proud heritage and expressive complexity.
My interest has been to expand and reconfigure this tool to express and benefit my personal compositional interests. I aim to retain enough familiarity wherein performers are able understand and interpret my music accurately and expressively. Through personal experiments and analysis of other composer's scores, I can make intuitive decisions for how and why I alter, expand, and eliminate notational conventions within my own musical works.
I have experimented with additions and reductions to the number staff lines and staves, eliminated certain key elements such as meter and precise pitch by replacing them with my own inventions, composed works with both graphic and text based elements, and at times broken all the rules of musical notation by removing the very necessity of musical interpretation from the score.
