Compositions

Undeterred by a disastrous performance of my first song at a school camp, I have been composing in earnest since 1984. In 2000 I settled on an idiom that allowed me to fully indulge my enthusiasm for the expressive possibilities of counterpoint. Here is a incomplete list of my music. You may also find complementary information on my page at the Australian Music Centre.
