Orchestral Works

Shabtis 2010 The material performed by the Gamelan ensemble guides the orchestra through the work’s “game-path” in a ritualistic function. At the end of the game after the Slow Dreaming Walzer and a Tutti game “Tut” is finally awoken. A new atmosphere and a previously unknown sound is heard. The Shabtis are awake and are ready to serve eternally in a new dimension of time, space and sound.

Electronic Music

The satirical tragicomedy, "Six Characters in Search of an Author" was written by Luigi Pirandello and first performed in 1921. The six characters enlist the help of a director and a company of six actors to bring their unfinished story to life.

Music for Theatre & Images

An Italian in Ethiopia 2010-2013 I have adapted this incredible story through some minor alterations to actual events and a small number of dramatic additions of fictional happenings. In the opera, the nature of Castagna is that of a heroic but eccentric man who lives freely with both an egocentrically naive lack of fear of the unknown or adversity, but with an obvious passion for dignity, justice and peace. Castagna has many ways of expressing himself.
