THE MODULAR MUSIC PROJECT

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC6dVIA8JqLEu9tZcUjwJLqg/playlists

The Modular Music Project is a developing series of works that explores modular compositions that break the 'fourth wall' of concert music performance.  The developing series will utilize real time interactivity between computers, mobile devices and instant messaging ‘apps’ to create music along the deterministic – improvisational – aleatoric continuum.  In this project I seek to create ‘living’ multimedia works through communicative flexibility between myself, the performers and the audience to address socio-political challenges of our contemporary moment.  
 
On March 19th, Colin McAlllister gave the world premiere of the first piece in the series, The End Times Are a'Changin', for solo guitar and socio-multimedia at
 
Through a Glass Darkly: Second Annual UCCS Symposium on Apocalytic on the campus of University of Colorado, Colorado Springs at the 
Heller Center

CALIFORNIA TABLEAUX PROJECT

The content here represents works that I have been composing as part of a large scale multimedia project entitled California Tableaux (CT).  CT is a multimedia work that synthesizes music, spoken word, video, and dance to look at California's culture mixtures, from Sir Francis Drake's landing on the Marin County coast in 1579, to our contemporary moment of rampant racist immigration policy and newly erected walls on the US-Mexico border.

THE FEAR EGO LOVE PROJECT

The content here constitutes the Fear Ego Love Project. The first piece is the premier performance of Fear Ego Love (2004), a piece for mixed instruments, rock band, and chamber choir. Fear Love Ego addresses the idea of the self undergoing an emotional and intellectual transformation through a process of uncovering and reacting to the ill effects of fear while searching for and gravitating towards the more humanistic qualities of love.
