I am a composer, overtone singer, and laptop performer. My compositions commonly involve fixed media, interactive media, Mongolian-inspired vocalizations, and socially conscious topics. The dissertation I am currently writing for my D.M.A. in Composition, regards selected Mongolian vocal music and its relationship with contemporary computer music composition.
