Sometimes I Feel Like a Motherless Child is a spiritual that has anonymous origins. This particular arrangement was inspired by Milt Jackson and Ray Brown’s arrangement.

Generally Spoken its Nothing But Rhythm is a very unique piece that incorporates a variety of percussion instruments to be played by one person. In the moments after the recital I heard someone remark that this piece was like listening to a new instrument. I had felt like I did, in fact, learn to play a new instrument.

The Thorn Trees is the third movement of Concerto for Marimba and Orchestra by Marta Ptaszynska. It makes interesting and unique use of the theme and variation form.

Illijas is a piece for solo marimba that expresses a range of emotions, interesting rhythms, and one handed roll technique.

Lucky’s Finger is an original work composed in the Fall of 2008. This recording makes use of the vibraphone trio format. The Timothy Van Cleave Project as it was called held a gig for nine months at a swanky little bar called Motini’s in Muncie, Indiana.

Araneae Envemomation by Ed Mellen was recorded live at a Student Composers Forum held in Sursa Hall at Ball State University.

Footprints by Miles Davis was recorded by the group The Third Greatest on May 22, 2010 at Doc’s Music Hall in Muncie, IN. It is an example of my abilities as performer on drum set in the jazz idiom. In this recording I tried to create a different texture for each soloist.

I once had a professor during my many years at university say, ” I wish when I got together with friends we could get our instruments out and jam.” This track entitled Sea Fever features some of my friends in Vancouver, BC. While they may not know it, the recordings of these hangs are a priceless treasure of mine.

Frame drum is perhaps one of the most beautiful percussion instruments and it is almost always overlooked. This instrument can be used in a folk setting or any other casual music making experience. I was invited to record with Nathan Fox, an incredible multi-instrumental talent. This composition was included on his album entitled The Ornithopter.

If you’ve made it this far down the page you are a trooper, a music lover, and have still yet to eclipse my dad’s support of my musical goals, but you are getting closer. Suite for Orchestra Movement I is one of my first attempts at orchestrating one of my ideas for a full size orchestra.

Finally. I spent a little bit of time one summer learning about musique concrete techniques using digital audio. If you like what you’ve heard so far Final Project will give you a taste of my sequencing abilities.
