My Music

Well, the music that's played on these instruments is really what it's all about, is it not?

Wind and Wire

Jonathan Chai and I play music together as "Wind and Wire." We are open to gigs in the Ithaca and Syracuse, New York region. For more information, sound samples, a photo, click here.

My Tunes

Over the years I have written a few tunes. On the "My Tunes" page are sound files of most of them, working copies. If any appeal to you please go ahead and play them. Click here.

A CD

In 2006 I recorded some tracks and put them together on a CD. Most certainly homemade. If you would like to buy a copy, great.

I have given copies of the CD to several people. Some one or two have said “this is great!”; some have said the usual formulae - how nice, thank you, etc. - but most have said nothing at all. Be warned.

Here is the track list.
