So far, I mostly compose intricately contrapuntal string quartet music
using mostly celtic melodies. I want to do more. I can play most woodwind
instruments, and I am interested in forming a primarily Chinese/Celtic
ensemble in which I would play mostly flutes and chinese mouth organ. I
can transcribe/transpose most western and chinese notation. Harmonization
and arrangement not a problem. I can tune your instrument and show you
the fingerings if necessary. I know this kind of music can work, because
I've seen it work before.
