What I'm doing now

Last Updated 2021-07-13

This is my now page. Have you considered one?

Effective this fall, I'll be working at NDSU in an expanded role as Assistant Professor of Practice. I'll be continuing my work in technology and entrepreneurship, and working towards expanding the (new!) composition program. 

We received word yesterday that NASM has granted us plan approval for the BM Composition degree plan we put together this spring. We're beginning to recruit for the program, and I'm working on adding resources to New Music North Dakota.

I've been trying out a bunch of new paper types for printing sheet music. This is in conjunction with the work I've commissioned from a graphic designer to revamp the sheet music covers over at NoteForge.

I'm feverishly writing a paper on "starting" for the Aspen Composers Conference in August.

I'm reading a lot of books that don't exist (yet) for my Field Studies in Publishing class. One of them will become a book in a few months. One of them probably won't.  

Currently Reading: Creativity: The Psychology of Discovery and Invention by Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi, and Behind Bars by Elaine Gould

Currently Listening to: The Berlin Philharmonic's Digital Concert Hall.

Recent Sheet Music Purchases: John Adams The Dharma at Big Sur, Charles Ives's Central Park in the Dark and Symphony no. 1.
