Orchestrope album cover


My first solo album of all original music is now available for download on Bandcamp. This album is a cinematic and layered blend of acoustic sounds of violin plus voice and percussion.

Look for it to be available on all streaming services in the coming months.


Issue #1

released July 2011 (Tritticali Music TM-01)

Trio Tritticali’s debut album is a cornucopia of string styles, from jazz and Latin covers “Stolen Moments” and “Corcovado,” to a spirited tango “La Yumba,” Arabic dance “Azizah,” and original rock tunes “Who Knows Yet” and “Issue No.1.”


The upside-down string quartet – with two cellos instead of the usual two violins.

The Strange Parade, their third CD, an independent release in 2007, showcases Invert’s distinctive mix of original compositions and improvisations. Besides featuring six compositions by Invert’s cellists Chris George and Steven Berson, “The Strange Parade” also includes their own arrangement of “Yumeji’s Theme” (from the movie “In The Mood For Love”) and eight group collaborations creating dramatic and haunting soundscapes.

Between The Seconds, released January 2004 (Capstone Records CPS-8729), the second Invert CD release, featuring five original compositions by Inverts members, three group improvisations, and original arrangements of Bernard Hermann’s Prelude to “Psycho” and The Beatle’s “Tomorrow Never Knows.”

Invert, released December 2001 (Inverted Music IM-01), the first official Invert CD release featuring six original compositions by Invert’s members
