This is Your Brain on Music...Or is it?

Research on the effect of music on the brain is not exempt from the widespread problem of terrible science reporting and overstated results, and we should stop trying to justify music education on shaky, non-musical ground. Read more at Medium.com...

Hymn of Acxiom arrangement

I did a quick string orchestra arrangement of The Hymn of Acxiom by Vienna Teng. There are some small notation quirks that I will probably change in the final score, but you can get the gist from this video I hastily put together. Hope you enjoy it!

Some info about me

I'm a composer and programmer living in Indianapolis. I spend some of my time writing music - everything from video game soundtracks to arrangements for high school bands. I spend the rest of my time exploring intersections between various areas of interest: music, computer science, games, math, and philosophy. I'm particularly interested in the nature of creativity and meaning, and to what extent machines/programs can exhibit or simulate various forms of them.
