about

Late in 2014, Gary Verkade made wonderful recordings of my two compositions for organ which were written for him during our years together in Essen, Germany: FLUX (1987)- and the 6-mvt work FIELDS & PLANES (1990). These recordings were made on the organ Acusticum at the Luleå Technical University in the far north of Sweden.
