NOTE: The two volumes of KOSMOS are pedagogical models for the extended techniques performer.  Volume one includes six pieces of various lengths  for one to four parts featuring the composer’s mapping of vocal tract articulation.  Volume two includes fourteen pieces of various lengths for one to four parts.  Through these fourteen pieces are taught differing methods of reinforced harmonic production. The works are designed to progress in a step-wise manner, beginning with relatively simple musical contexts and developing in complexity.  As always, both volumes are designed to be musically fulfilling and not merely pedagogical exercises.
