For over 10 years I’ve offered copying/engraving services to publishers, composers and musicians at competitive rates. As a composer with plenty of first hand experience working with orchestras, ensembles and performers, I understand the needs and wants of both musicians, composers and librarians. My goal is to deliver not only flawless but aesthetically pleasing documents that address all the common issues with self-published scores and parts and make the act of reading and playing as seamless as possible.
Services include: score preparation from handwritten manuscripts, scanned materials, midi files, xml files and Sibelius files; layout and editing of scores and parts; detailed proofreading to ensure compliance with present day publishing standards and MOLA guidelines. As an experienced rehearsal pianist, I make idiomatic and precise piano reductions for vocal scores (operas and choral works). Materials are delivered as print ready PDFs using standard page sizes and formats as appropriate or specifically requested.
Projects include operas, orchestral works, ensemble works, vocal works and solo/chamber works by David Lang (prisoner of the state, the loser, anatomy theater, symphony without a hero, harmony and understanding), Hannah Lash (Beowulf, Desire, Leander and Hero, The Voynich Symphony, Requiem) Fred Lerdahl (Cyclic Descent, Time and Again, String Quartet No. 4 “Chaconne”), Bernard Rands (“...in the receding mist...”, “...sans voix parmi les voix...”), Alvin Singleton (La Flora, Apple, Across Differences), Stewart Wallace (Hat Trunk) and Frank Zappa (200 Motels), as well as works by Alex Mincek, Kate Soper, Julia Wolfe, Michael Gordon, Mozart, Ives and Bruckner, most of which end up in both print and digital formats at major publishers such as Schott Music, Red Poppy and Universal.
