The music and lyrics of Untethering Still were written specifically for Sophia Santiago. The lyrics are based on her personal experiences and feelings while quarantining during the Covid-19 pandemic. I hope you enjoy her performance as much as I do.

This composition was written at 2 A.M. in the middle of the Covid-19 pandemic. Needless to say it is a reflection of all sorts of “tired.”

Starting at 1:05:05, you can find my recomposition of Taps by General Daniel Butterfield. It is written as a recessional for 14 trumpets. For more information on this project, please check out this blog post about the concert, Time To Break Silence: '…let freedom ring,' or send me a message.

This composition is an exploration of bombastic dramatic energy, without requiring viruosity as a pre-requisite. Musical information was expressed through text and graphics.
