Hot off the press is this new treatise that’s been in the works since 2013. I’ve been intending on compiling all three versions of Rabat Waterfront Fantasy for quite awhile. The final product is an 80-page compilation for composers and music theorists. Included are 23 pages of my original sketches, along with three study scores for orchestra, concert wind band, and Pierrot ensemble. I plan to make it available for purchase in the near future.

Mark Lewis in 香港 (Full Score)-1Hi everyone out there, I’ve just completed another work. This time, it’s a new work for string quartet, inspired by photographs taken by an acquaintance of mine while on a trip to Hong Kong. The work is called, Mark Lewis in Hong Kong. It’s in 3 movements, and the running time is about 9’25 minutes. Dig the front cover U S Marshall - Bass Reeves (info sheet)-1of the score.

Further, with Symphony No. 2 (Khemet West) complete, I can focus on completing several existing sketches. One work, U.S. Marshall – Bass Reeves (An Overture for an American Western) is currently being fleshed out. It’s for full orchestra, with men’s choir, accordion, and guitar.This particular composition will be a short one, at about 6 minutes. As part of my history series, this unique work would serve well as both an educational piece and an addition to any symphony orchestra’s program.

In the meanwhile, I’m seeking a residency with a major orchestra and commissions to compose new works. I begin editing Symphony No. 2 in the fall, and until then, I will attempt to complete as many works as I can. So far, I’m averaging two a month.

In the pop music world, work over at InCrowd has been amazing! Dig our first release, the wonderful Mattiel singing “Baby Brother“.

Stay tuned!
