• WINTER 2009/2010 NEWS: Scales of Magnification, my fourth album and first major work since 2002, is now available for purchase (with free preview) at the iTunes Music Store. Seven years in the making, Scales of Magnifications features arrays of biological melodies that collide with alien rhythms, and microedits dancing elegantly with the macro-scale.
  • Academic/Research: I am currently a resident in Radiology at Brigham and Women's Hospital affiliated with Harvard Medical School. I graduated from the University of Massachusetts Medical School in 2008, and completed an internship in Internal Medicine at Massachusetts General Hospital. My research interests include the neuroimaging of music and neuroradiology.
  • Medical Education: I've co-created a series of Flash-based modules focusing on neuroanatomy, one of which has been integrated into the Harvard Medical School curriculum. In addition, I have created several hundred pages of board-review style medical school notes, which have been downloaded thousands of times.

  • Electronic Music: I have also been producing computer music for the past fifteen years, and was one of the first electronic musicians to explore the laptop for music production and live performance in the late 90's and early 2000's. I released three albums and numerous EPs, and have had the opportunity to play solo shows at famous venues through North America, Europe, and Japan, including the Knitting Factory, Mutek, Sonar, and the Walker Art Museum.

  • Music Tests: Over one million subjects have taken the free Tonedeaf Test. Since then, I have created a total of four tests that quantify musical performance in the rhythm, frequency, and visual domains.
