2021 Fromm Commissioned Composers announced

I am honored to be one of the recipients of the 2021 Fromm Commissions, alongside David Bird, Pablo Chin, Jessie Cox, Louis Goldford, 
Selim Göncü, Anthony Green, Tomás Gueglio Saccone, Michelle Lou, Nicole Mitchell, Diana Rodríguez, Sang Song, Katherine Young and Pamela Z.

The Board of Directors of the Fromm Music Foundation at Harvard University has announced the names of fourteen composers selected to receive 2021 Fromm commissions. These commissions represent one of the principal ways that the Fromm Music Foundation seeks to strengthen composition and to bring contemporary concert music closer to the public. In addition to the commissioning award, a subsidy is available for the ensemble performing the premiere of the commissioned work.

Dreamt Twice, Twice Dreamt

Dreamt Twice, Twice Dreamt

Dreamt Twice, Twice Dreamt is probably the most personal record I have ever made. Almost two years of hard work has gone into the making of it and I am immensely proud of the result. It's a double record  - the first CD features music for chamber orchestra + soloists, the second for small ensembles, playing upside down and inside out versions of the same,dream based compositions. 
to buy physical copies, please click here for $25 +pp.
The digital version is available from Intakt Record's Bandcamp

'All Set' for sale now!

'All Set' for sale now!

All Set, a collaboration by French alto saxophonist Stéphane Payen and myself, also featuring Chris Tordini on bass and Tom Rainey on drums is now available here. Stéphane and I both contributed the compositions. To have a common thread between our different compositional styles, we loosely based the pieces on the pitch arrays and 12-tone structures from Milton Babbit's third stream composition "All Set". I am very happy with the result and hope you enjoy it! To check out an excerpt of Stéphane's piece "Harmonization", please visit

$15+$3.50pp in the US. International postage rates apply.

Stir Crazy Series

Stir Crazy Series

After more than a year and 60 episodes, Stir Crazy is going into retirement (with a big mash-up bang of 20 previous episodes and us reacting to them)!
It’s been a blessing to be able to continue creating new music and to share it throughout such a difficult and unsettling ordeal. Many thanks to all of you who listened! And to our community of amazing musicians who contributed pieces for us to play and our musical heroes who’s songs we lovingly appropriated, thanks a million!! Below you’ll find the final credits.
Although the episodes were free, many of you donated. This meant we could donate to many local and international charities and, at times, other musicians. Thank you all for your generosity!
Peace and .... Ingrid + Tom
