The future of music is literally moved forward by dance. Dancers embody sound in a profoundly unique way that some musicians do not master for many years. This knowledge and practice is critical to who we are as people in community. I am in awe of the collaboration of dance and music. My art is at the core of this interdisciplinary phenomenon.
I hope to make this practice available to every curious musician and dancer. Sound for Movement is a place for me to share what I have experienced after 25 years of playing class, performing alongside dancers, composing for choreographers and teaching music for dance in higher education.
I am a musican. I make music for dance. My main instruments are piano, voice, trumpet, guitar, laptop, modular synth and the environment around me. I have created simple systems for remote collaborations and music licensing. I have a growing catalogue of over 500 pieces of music made specifically for movement. My music flows through many genres, moods, lengths and tempos. I recently left working in higher education to begin sharing all of my teaching materials and practices around making music for dance.
