(Accurate, 1994) and Love Not Love Love Lust Not Lust (Challenge, 1999) with Dadadah, Chamber Music for the Inner Ear with several ensembles (CRI/New World, 2002), eponymous What is it Like to Be a Bat? (Tzadik, 2003) and Hildegurls (Innova, 2010), and I’ve blogged here on wordpress about my translation work for ecclesiastes:a modern oratorio for male vocal quartet, percussion, cello and laptop (Innova, 2010). In 2012, Boosey & Hawkes published SATB “O Joy!” and University of Oldenberg awarded me a prize for my eco-protest choral translation of “Psalm 104.” I teach composition, history, theory, fundamentals, band design—anything music-related—at Bennington College in Vermont.
