about

I have always been a big fan of visual art, especially certain great painters. My interest in visual expression may have something to do with the fact that I hear in color, but either way it's a novel (if not new) concept.

For my third undergraduate senior recital, I composed a concert's-worth of music based on famous paintings, using the images as a basis for composition.
