I am a composer of electro-acoustic music. I have been involved with applying mathematics to create new methods of sound synthesis, and my compositions reflect this. I have composed pieces for tape alone, and for tape and instruments. I have also been involved in some audio-visual works. My pieces have been peformed in Australia and overseas. In 1998 I was granted associate representation with the Australian Music Centre.
