New Releasings

Labor Records in collaboration with Naxos is releasing a series of recordings of my work covering more than half a century! The most recent release is "Jukebox in the Tavern of Love" paired with a new work by Meredith Monk. "The Nude Paper Sermon" and "Wiretap" is a double album containing no fewer than five works; see below for details. "Civilization & its Discontents" is a words-and-music collaboration with Michael Sahl. More information, reviews and ordering (physical or digital editions) is available below or by going to Labor Records.

website up for “Big Jim & the Small-time Investors”

My new work, “Big Jim & the Small-time Investors”, is music-theater or theater opera about an L.A. con man who gets people to invest in his virtual-reality scheme in which everyone’s wildest fantasies seem to come true. I’m finishing the orchestration which is for strings, accordion, electronic keyboards, drums & percuassion and we are in the process of casting for a staged reading in March (more of that anon). In the meantime, there is now a web site for Big Jim: <>.
