NOTES
Agilkia, is an ode to the Rosetta mission's Philae lander’s landing site on Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko called “Agilkia,” named after an Egyptian island that hosts the Temple of Isis that previously was on the island Philae. This work is based on a sound file of the comet’s magnetic field which was acoustically enhanced. Choral voices complete the composition.

Meditation (The Grasses) is an audio meditation on the evening soundscape of a summer meadow. This was composed as the sound track to Meditation, the video, by Mark Patsfall. The audio that is the seed of this composition was recorded in Halifax, Pennsylvania.

Seven Sonic Etudes are an exploration of everyday soundmarks. These works were composed as a component of the artwork for an exhibition of miniatures.

Mississagi Rocks, is a sound composition based on field recordings from the Mississagi Rocks near Mississagi Light on the Mississagi Straits, Manitoulin Island, Ontario, Canada.
