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.

How's the D.M.A going? Just wanted to check in and also see if there was anything that you've heard about the ASU Gammage or anything else in regards to the potential for Imre's tour? Thank you again for you help and hope this finds you very well.
Just checking in to see if you received my e-mail and I didn't flub the address or something. Things are still progressing on the tour. I met another very interesting contact in AZ. His name is Byron Metcalf and he lives in Prescott Valley. Know of him?
I'm organizing a small tour for Imre Peemot in the US next Spring. We were interested in coming through Arizona so I thought I'd see if you'd be interested in being of any help? Any guidance to your local music scene is appreciated and it would be great to meet up on the journey! Hope this finds you well.
