Speculative theorist of post-Partch structural theory and post-Tenney perceptual theory.
A composer of radical Catholicity in the truest sense, in both conception and in execution, as well as one akin to Harry Partch in stressing a corporeal music drawn from the ancient world without pastiche, syncretic new age ideas, or direct copy, achieved through an emphasis on an ancient attitude, not an ancient sound.
