FIVE CONTRASTING AND REPRESENTATIVE WORKS
California Tableaux Project
(2007-present)

California Tableaux is a developing two-act opera that synthesizes music, sound collage, video, dance and text to to tell a kaleidoscopic, provocative story of California's pivotal cultural intersections, from Sir Francis Drake's alleged landing on the Marin County coast in 1579 to the present.  The video below is a 'trailer' that weaves together the opening two minutes of the Overture (composed as of 12/3/16) followed by excerpts of chamber works that are part of the opera (you can explore the entire project here).  I intend to finish an album performance of the work in late 2017 and premiere the complete production in 2018.  While you may wish to just watch the video (accessible by clicking on the image), I have also made available a score that stitches the excerpts together.

The second video is a performance of one of the chamber pieces associated with the California Tableaux Project as realized by my duo, the McAllister Keller Duo.  Again, I provide here both a video of a complete performance and a full score.

Horse Thieves: 
'Bout Damn Time 
(released July, 2016)

Released this past July, 'Bout Damn Time is a new album of 'prog' and 'new' rock music. I have produced everything on the album: compositions, guitar parts, vocal parts, programming (drums, bass and keys), mixing, editing, and mastering.   Please feel free to scroll through the track list and audition the songs.  I will be playing this out in 2017 with my power trio, Horse Thieves. There are no scores/charts available for the album, so please enjoy just listening.
