The seven pieces on my album 'Spaceships' are my impressions of traveling through space and viewing the galaxies, star nurseries, and other phenomena as depicted by the NASA pictures of the day. I have composed overtures and incidental music for the Theater of the Blue Rose, Berkeley Repertory Theater, the Luxor Hotel in Las Vegas, and the Suhaila Salimpour Dance Troupe, ranging in styles from meditative to full blown orchestral pieces based upon subjects as diverse as 'Dracula' to 'Comedia del arte'. I have been a professional percussionist for 35 years, so many of my pieces contain strong rhythmic foundations. I have studied piano, composition, and orchestration with Arkadi Serper from the Moscow Conservatory, and piano with Tom Constanten of the Grateful Dead.
