about

I have long been captivated by stories about monsters: mythological and by extension the 20th century Science Fiction variety. Being a Pacific Rim resident, two film score composers have long entranced my otherwise jazz-oriented palate: Akira Ifukube and Masuro Satô.
Several of the themes presented here were composed by them and, like the jazz musician I am, they became my muse: I rearranged, extended these motifs and even created newly composed works from them, combining my own musical thoughts and tastes to comment on the overarching theme of "monsters among us."
