Amy is now the Seattle correspondent for the American Music Center's Web Magazine, The NewMusicBox. Read her monthly column about new music in Seattle by clicking on http://www.newmusicbox.org/radar.nmbx.

She has been awarded the 2005 Jack Straw Artist Award Grant to create a number of narrative radio pieces, Piano Portraits; this work is a series of sonic portraits of pianists, as they describe themselves through the layering of their own texts and piano tracks.

Amy is performing her own arrangements of Piazzolla Tangos and writing new ones as well for the TANGO PROJECT. Her collaborators include violinists Irene Mitri and Tom Swafford. You can hear a sample of her recording,” Tangos for Violin and Piano”  on the Discography page.

She is currently at work on a series of new pieces involving a combination of her own music and photography, dealing with images that fool the eye, and sound that fools the ear.

Amy is always open to meeting new collaborators, and creating new music for diverse audiences in diverse environments.
