This site is a field guide to my life as a composer, but also a guide to the many ways in which my works are shaped and made. It contains some of my drawings that form such an important part of my process  and research, which in turn lead to performances and recordings. It is a series of sonic and visual portraits   , a natural biography that illustrates my ongoing contact with nature. News and reviews completes this home guide!
